I am SO excited to be featuring a fellow Epic Eighteen author, Tara Luebbe! This book is perfect for an interactive pre-k/kindergarten read aloud because it prompts readers to discuss how to respond when we fail. Do we give up or do we persevere? It also allows for a discussion about perfection. Do we have to be perfect to be a star? All in all, this is a great growth mindset discussion book for the early elementary classroom. Be sure to check out the super fun activity guide below. It has lots of cute center activities.
Activity Name: A Star is Born
Activity Description: Start off by having students fill out the A Star is Born worksheet included in the activity kit below. Then, ask students to identify one activity then can do better now than they could when they were a baby. Next, ask students to share one challenge they faced while learning that activity. Finally, ask them to explain how they overcame the challenge.
Weekly Wall Recommendations
For the 2018-2019 school year, students will be choosing books to display on our classroom recommendation wall. The wall is a lending library. It showcases the various literature choices in the classroom, celebrates students' voices and choices, facilitates getting to know each other through our literature choices, and facilitates communication with the global learning community.
