Spaghetti with the Yeti Interactive Read-aloud
nd the perfect read-aloud for January. Take your students on a fun adventure with a boy named George as he tries to find the Yeti. George is sure the Yeti will love some spaghetti! This book has fun rhyming text and great dialogue. After reading the story to the class and asking some Key Ideas and Details Core Standard’s text dependent questions
, students will retell the story by figuring out who each monster was and what food they thought the Yeti would like to eat.
For the second lesson, we decided to focus on the dialogue after answering text dependent questions
from the Craft and Structure Core Standards. Students will look at the dialogue from Spaghetti with the Yeti and fill in what the different characters were saying throughout the story. This is a fun activity as they realize the fun rhyme and rhythm that the dialogue has in the story.
On the third lesson, we will answer Integration of Knowledge and Ideas Core Standard’s text dependent questions. To learn more about text dependent questions visit this blog post here. Then students will come up with their own creature and what they would like to eat. We came up with a Sasquatch who only eats squash. The students will really get to be creative with their own creatures.
The lesson will be completed as students create a food craft. Students can make spaghetti for the Yeti or they can make the food to go with their story. We used paper, yarn, glue, and fuzz balls for this craft. Students can use similar materials to make their own food.
