My class have been loving Mrs Wishy-Washy. Have any of you read it yet? If so, I would love to hear your comments :)
It was so sweet of Santa to leave us some books that we had never even heard of. It means that the this month’s comprehension focus on “prediction” is even easier to teach. Thanks Santa!!!
I always like to include a Reader Response Activity at the end of a story telling session. It is an easy way to encourage children to engage in some creative writing as they already have lots of mental imagery floating around ;)
Yesterday my class used this reader response activity to help Mrs. Wishy-Washy with the bothersome task of scrubbing all of those animals.
You could use it in two ways:
To elicit a priori knowledge (before reading):
- Predict what Mrs. Wishy-Washy would need in order to wash the animals.
- Tick the box if your prediction appeared in the book itself.
As a reader response to the story:
- What did Mrs. Wishy-Washy have laid out in the barn for washing the animals?
- Can you think of any other/better things that she could use?
- What would you use?
I hope that you find this Mrs. Wishy-Washy’s Farm worksheet useful. I have printed it and all margins are working for me. If you have any difficulties please let me know.
Miss Mernagh :)
