Goals:

Students will "identify and predict recurring phrases in traditional tales." --Massachusetts English/Language Arts Curriculum Framework

Resource Instructions

Come up with text for the story. Try to fit in a recurring phrase. You might try the following example: Starting on the page with the mouse asking, "Do you want to be my friend?"  Next page: "But horse did not answer. Do you want to be my friend?"  Next page: "But bird and alligator did not answer. Do you want to be my friend?" Continue with this pattern.

Have students color the illustrations from the book. Tape the pages end to end, making sure to match the tails with the correct animals. Using an accordion fold, students should fold their books.

Extensions:

Have students create new text to tell the story.
