Week of Reads - Click, Clack Mooooooo #3

All week I will feature a favorite book with some activities to match.

Third Up is Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type

Before Reading:-Discuss ways we (humans) communicate with each other:

Email, Telephone, Talk, Write, Type...

-Now Discuss ways in which animals communicate: bark, jump, yelp, -Ask your students if they have pets?

How do they know when a pet wants something.

-Ask: What would it be like if animals could talk? What might a horse or chicken have to say to us?

*Discuss personification: when an author makes an animal or object take on characteristics of people.

-Ask your students to name some of the stories that they have read where the author uses personification.

List the stories. Examples may be: The Three Little Pigs, Clifford the Big Red Dog, If you Give a Mouse a Cookie...

-Show the students the cover of the book. Read the title. Ask the students if they think that the author will use personification in this book?

What makes your students think she will use personification?

Examples given may be: The title of the book: typing is not something cows do in real life.

Pocket Chart Vocab. Center:Place all the vocab. words in a pocket chart. Place the picture cards in a ziploc baggie. Have your students match the picture cards to the word.**Click her to print this center from Teaching Heart
