Kids shown with under the description come with lesson plans included.
Those shown without will have lesson plans available later.
Concept: Metacognition—The Superhero inspires students to become Super Readers by thinking about what they read. He exemplifies the Metacognition strategy perfectly.
Concept: Retelling—We all love a good story. Students can use The Storyteller and 3 Little Pigs characters to Retell the “pieces” (Story Structure) every good story should have.
Doctor and Veterinarian
Concept: Compare and Contrast—How are a Medical Doctor and a Veterinarian alike? How are they different? Together they create an excellent representation of the Compare and Contrast strategy?
Concept: Clarify—The Eye Doctor helps us to see things more clearly. This kid personifies the methods we need to clarify a word or concept as we read.
Concept: Questioning—Who fields more questions in a day than a Mother? The Mother is the obvious choice to teach about Questioning.
Concept: Inference/Drawing Conclusions—The Detective is the ideal metaphor for Inference and Drawing Conclusions. As with a Detective solving a case students use the same skills to develop inferences/draw conclusions.
Concept: Description—The TV Reporter is live and on the scene with the latest news flash! He helps us to understand the latest events (or most interesting animals, or fascinating people) with his excellent descriptions.
