I saw a teacher show her students the importance of the ending of a book today and I loved the idea and wanted to share it!
The teacher introduced the book The Three Little Pigs by laying out some straw, some sticks, and a couple of bricks. She generated some discussion with the kids about why she brought these items to school and what they might mean. With a little guidance, they thought of the book The Three Little Pigs.
The teacher used the Benchmark big book version of The Three Little Pigs for the lesson. If you are not familiar with Benchmark's version of the different fairy tales, you should check them out. They have big bright illustrations and they are not too wordy.
