Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun--Read Aloud Activity Packet about Courage

The courage to be yourself is the theme for this wonderful book about a girl named Lucy. She struggles with this idea at school. It is a common theme for many people, but especially children. The author, Maria Dismondy, explores this theme by providing situations for Lucy in her daily encounters with others. This packet includes opportunities to discuss genre, themes, and emotions. There is a 20-word vocabulary list with flashcards and a Word Search. Discussion Questions for whole group discussion are provided along with Discussion Cards to be used in small group settings. I've included 14 possible Written Responses to the reading. An assessment- Short Answer Questions-is in the packet. As another way of looking at the story, there is a Story Snapshot with space for an illustration and lines for a writing explanation of the picture. Finally, I have added what I call a Theme Poster Design where students have directions, a sheet highlighting "Courage" with illustration space and writing paper to discuss the theme. Your students will love this story!         😊 Susan πŸ“š
