Fantastic Mr Fox - Boggis, Bunce and Bean!

Fantastic Mr Fox - Boggis, Bunce and Bean!

This fun and informative lesson helps students to understand the descriptive language techniques used by Roald Dahl in his descriptions of Boggis, Bunce, and Bean in ‘Fantastic Mr Fox.’ In particular, students analyse how Dahl's language is used to create imagery, before designing and describing their very own mean farmers! The lesson follows a step-by-step learning journey, in which children learn through: -Completing a card-sorting activity to define and exemplify each of the descriptive devices; - Reading and understanding extracts from the opening of Fantastic Mr Fox, in which the farmers are described; - Identifying and analysing Dahl's use of language devices throughout the description of the farmers; - Writing their own language device-filled descriptions of their farmers, with support from a clear template; - Self assessing their own learning attempts. Included is: - Whole lesson PowerPoint - colourful and comprehensive; - Language Analysis Worksheet (and answer sheet); - Selected extracts - Billionaire Boy; - Cards for Sorting Activity; - Planning Template (Word and PDF); - Comprehensive lesson plan. There are also opportunities for group learning, speaking and listening, peer assessment, and whole class discussion. I originally used these resources with a mixed-ability year 7 class, however colleagues have used them for between years 3 and 9 with some adaptations.

The Runaway Bunny Lesson Plans & Activities Package, First Grade (CCSS)

The Runaway Bunny Lesson Plans & Activities Package, First Grade (CCSS)

This set of lesson plans, resources, and activities is for use with “The Runaway Bunny” by Margaret Wise Brown. It can be used for whole group, small group, and independent instruction – which makes these resources a smart choice for literacy centers or Reader’s Workshop. Here's What You'll Get and Why: My goal was to make it easy to teach readers how to think about “The Runaway Bunny” using a variety of comprehension strategies. That's why I've included page by page lesson plans, guided practice worksheets, and text-specific reader's notebook prompts for the following strategies: - Retelling and Summarizing - Making Connections - Making Predictions - Identifying the Author's Purpose - Visualizing I also created an Extension Activity for early finishers. Next, I find that vocabulary instruction works best when it's done within the context of books that students are already reading. That's why I've included the following vocabulary resources: - Vocabulary Word List - Flash Cards (match words to pictures and match words to definitions) - Interactive Vocabulary Notebook Cards - Vocabulary Word Games Printable - Personal Vocabulary Word Bookmark I've also included a word study lesson plan and set of activities, because, much like vocabulary, I find that word study works best within context. As a result, I have identified word patterns within trade books and have developed lesson plans and resources based on the word study that can be done with specific books. The lesson plan and set of resources for “The Runaway Bunny” focuses on Short Vowel and includes the following: - Lesson Plan - Interactive Activity - Practice Page - Independent Word Work This set of resources also includes the following: - Running Record Assessment - Answer Keys - Common Core State Standard Alignment - BONUS: Surprise Sample Resource I hope that you will enjoy using my resources along with your copy or copies of “The Runaway Bunny” by Margaret Wise Brown. If you have any questions about the resources included in this set please email me at AmyMackenzie@BookPagez.com. It will be my pleasure to reply and help you in any way I can.
