The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend by Dan Santat
Creepy Carrots! by Aaron Reynolds
Bone Soup by Cambria Evans
Sam and Dave Dig a Hole by Mac Barnett
Pumpkin Eye by Denise Fleming
Piggie Pie! and Zoom Broom by Margie Palatini
During these lessons, we compared and contrasted the two stories. For Piggie Pie, we focused on key ideas and details by having students complete a “somebody-wanted-but-so-then” flip book. Students wrote an alternate ending to the story and designed a disguise for Gritch to hide from the wolf. After discussing the key ideas in Zoom Broom, students were able to complete a Venn diagram, comparing the two stories.
