Love how Peggy Rathmann never really “tells” us about Gloria’s theatrics, but it is plastered all over the pages.
Of course, story telling through pictures is Ms. Rathman’s specialty, as also illustrated in, “Goodnight Gorilla”.
We used this illustration from the story to make a predication as to what would happen through the rest of the book.
Don’t have access to this cute book?
We also worked on using illustrations to draw conclusions, so as a quick fun activity we read, “Animals Should Definitely NOT Wear Clothing”.
It’s an oldie but a goodie! My class LOVED telling me why the animals shouldn’t wear clothes!
Then, we took to our Reading Response Journals and answered the age old question…
“Why shouldn’t animals wear clothing? Sight specific details to support your claim. Be sure to use an illustration in your response.”
(Yeah… we’re full on CCSS up in this room…)
Here are a few of our responses…
The class was full of giggles as we shared our answers with our shoulder partners.
Well those are just a few of the activities we did this week! Next week we start holidays! Getting my centers and activities prepped! #cantwait #Gingerbreadfun

Ahhhh! The smell of fresh lamination! #anyonewanttohelpmecut
Well, now it’s time for me to enjoy my Friday night! I’ve got a date with the couch, a redhead, and a movie! (Some lamination *may* crash this date night…)
