We did a whole bunch of ELA activities using Otis a springboard for our learning. Here's a photo tour of our week.
We sequenced the story. This was a little a-ha moment when I saw that this was tricky for some. We will be doing more of this for practice!
Sorry I can't get this picture to flip! We made story booklets including characters, setting, retell, opinion and favorite part.
We worked on nouns, verbs and adjectives.
We discussed A LOT of the vocabulary in this book. It has some wonderful words! I made word cards and definitions and the students had to match up. They loved this! We had to do it several times.
Are you are now thinking..."I'd love to do these Otis' activities with my class. This look like tons of fun." Have no fear! I just posted this to TPT. I call these little book studies "Take a Look in a Book"

We also watched this super cute video that goes perfect with the book. It is taken at Dollywood where they do play of books and they did Otis! Careful you'll have the song stuck in your head all day.
Thanks so much for stopping in!
