Continuing Cupcakes

Wow!  My kids really got into the book If You Give a Cat a Cupcake.  We went around and made up our own story, and my little darlings were just coming up with so many creative ideas - I'm so proud of them!  I can't believe that this is the same group of kids from the beginning of the year who couldn't speak a whole sentence of English.  Here is another freebie that I used to go with the book.  I like making and using these papers because they help me find out if my kids truly are remembering details from the story.

Also, I've been concentrating so much on teaching reading, listening and speaking that I haven't been doing as much with creative writing as I should.  I mean, we did make Valentine's Cards for our friends and family, and that gave them an opportunity to write sentences, but I want to move away from the children copying sentences and get more into completing sentence starters.  So, today I made this sentence starter for the book that they really loved last week.

I'd love to hear about writing ideas that all of you have.  Please, if you can, leave me a note below!

  1. Hi!Thanks for starting to follow my blog! I hope you are able to find some things you can use. I do not have any students this year with visual impairments, but if I ever do I will definitely be asking for some input. Thanks for the freebies! We are going to begin reading the Laura Numeroff books within the next month.
