So excited to learn about this early reader series. The activity I'm featuring is an activity all students need to be proficient in, the retell. Be sure to check out the guide because there are lots of fun ideas inside. My favorite activity inside the guide is Lights, Camera, Action! which accompanies Joe and Sparky, Superstars! Sparky's talent is shadow puppets, and the guide suggests making paper bag puppets with students. Every year our fourth graders do light-themed shadow puppet activities. I'm including the file below.
Activity Name: Joe and Sparky's Time-ly Adventures
Activity Description: There's an appealing activity sheet for the retell in the activity guide. "You can use time words to help recall and retell a story. Think about your favorite Joe and Sparky adventure. Then retell the story using the time words below. Finally, draw pictures of the adventure in order in the correct spaces."
