Corduroy update!

Please see a new post from Feb. 2018 HERE

I am a huge fan of Corduroy by Don Freeman and love to use the story in my classroom.  Retell is such a huge part of grade one so I have added a story retell rope to my Corduroy unit. 

The good news - if you already own it you can redownload the unit over at TPT for free.

Students will use the retell rope to tell about the setting, characters, problem, beginning, middle, end and solution.  I included color and black and white piece in addition to a smaller students size version and an anchor chart.

These activities coordinate with my Spin (or Roll), Tally and Graph math work station.

Would you like a chance to win both of these products?  Two winners will each win BOTH!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Good luck!

Don't forget I have some Corduroy freebies available too!  Just click on the pages below to download :)

I hope you're enjoying the long weekend!  I know I am !!!!!
