Thanksgiving Literacy Activity

Education to the Core: Thanksgiving Literacy Activity and a FREEBIE Mini-Book!

A Stellaluna Unit...Super cute!!! A Story Map, a B-M-E story map on a bat, a Venn-Diagram using bats/birds, a paperbag bat and short writing exercise.

Have children create a bracelet using a green bead for the beginning, a red bead for the ending and 3 or more other beads for the middle. As children retell a story have them slide a bead from left to right for the beginning and then another bead for each story component. With younger children I would use three detail (middle beads) however, you may wish to increase the number with older students.

When I read a story It has more than one part! The title and the author Are just the places I start! The setting, characters, and problem Are parts of the story, too! Beginning, middle, end, and solution Help me retell the story to you!

Mrs. Byrd's Learning Tree: Story Map Freebie! Cute kindergarten student story maps on Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The FREEBIE can be used with any story.
