If you haven't read the Scaredy Squirrel books you need to! I absolutely love them and wish I had come up with such a brilliant idea for a book.
We made connections to Scaredy. Everyone has a fear!! Once we shared our fears students filled in the connection paper. It's a FREE download at my TpT Store (Scaredy Squirrel Connections).
Once the students filled in the worksheet I showed them how to draw their very own Scaredy Squirrel. I wish I had taken pictures!! They came out great and are hanging in the hall. Students made their very own Emergency Kit using their connection worksheet to help them.
Here are a few pictures of students working.
