Where are you going, Little Red Riding Hood?

It is fun to compare students’ thoughts about the characters of stories we have read in class.  We select speech balloons from the shape tool and add them to graphics on the screen so that students can write in the conversation that they are having.

cloneSometimes we will open the page sorter, click on the thumbnail and clone the page a number of times so that each student can create their own conversation.

Students work at this during the day while others are working at their seats or at centers.  At the end of the day, when we have all finished, it is fun to read the conversations together.  We can even add in ‘the moral of the story’, as in the example shown, where we had to discuss talking to strangers.

By the way, do you know the origin of Red Riding Hood.  Check this out for some startling suggestions!  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Red_Riding_Hood

Happy Learning!
