Hi Everyone...I am so excited for Valentine's Day to get here because I get to read my
ALL TIME FAVORITE book called...
Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch
Whenever I read this book to my students I get such a wonderful feeling inside and it just makes me happy! I have been reading this book for years in my second grade classroom, so I decided to create a fun and interactive lesson and craftivity for my favorite book.
Check out Mr. Hatch! Isn't he just adorable! I literally can't wait for my kiddos to make him and celebrate Valentine's Day. I added three different comprehension skills in this unit. Character Traits, Summarizing with Beginning, Middle, and End, and Sequencing the events in the story with a heart-shaped accordion book.
This year I am going to focus on Character Traits for this story and teach a mini-lesson on supporting your character trait conclusions with Text-Based support as evidence to support their claim. I can't wait to try it out. They will create Mr. Hatch and the heart-shaped cut-out. Inside the heart, they will add "Chocolate Candy Character Traits" and they will use their text-based evidence to support their ideas.
If you are interested in purchasing my unit featuring Mr. Hatch, head on over to my TPT store to get a hold of it :)
I am linking up with Sunny Days in Second Grade so go and check out some of the great Valentine's Day goodies that everyone has been linking up!
