Plaidypus lost

We spent the week reading Plaidypus Lost. It is a super cute story about a little girl who just can't seem to keep track of her stuffed plaidypus. We used the book to discuss characters and setting. Then we used interactive writing to list the characters in the story and the settings.

One day we introduced my story map and we mapped out the story on sticky notes.

We made text to self connections about a time they lost something special. I shared the story of my lost wedding ring. This cute little recording sheet is modeled after one Kim Adsit made.

I saw that Growing Kinders also read Plaidypus Lost. She made a flow map with her class. I've been so excited to use this idea with my class. We used our list of characters and settings to sequence the story. Everyone partnered up and illustrated either a setting or character. Oh my gosh, they all shared and worked so nicely together.

I finally unloaded my pictures so I have much more to share.

I love this book. I just started a unit on making connections. I LOVE your recording sheet and your story map. Would you be willing to share it? Thanks for sharing what you do in your class :)

This would also be a great set up for text-to-text connections by reading Knuffle Bunny (1st or 2nd). Thank you for sharing this read aloud!
