Native American Legends

Our class has been reading a variety of legends.  They absolutely LOVE these stories and the lessons they teach.

Last week we read the books below and our mini lesson was, "Good readers retell the beginning, middle, and end of a story.

We retold the stories and lessons learned in each book.

For the story, How Chipmunk Got His Stripes, students made flip books to retell the story.

We'll continue with legends this week.  Students will listen to Raven and will create one!

  1. You wrote this at just the right time!!! I keep forgetting to check your blog. I have the raccoon book, but not the others. I have to get them. Send me an email, would you? Reminding me of where you teach. I think we are near each other now as I have moved.
