    I love Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse!
    By Joy

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Kevin Henkes books are so fun! Here are just a couple things that I have done or seen others do:

    - I put together a story "purse" with a purple purse, cat-eye (movie star sunglasses), 4 quarters, cheese doodles, a nice note, and a mean note to use during the Lilly story ( I got all of this stuff from home or Goodwill

    - Make a class name graph after reading Chrysanthemum by writing names in tiled graph paper and organzing them by letter. You can then talk about the graph results and compare the data

    - You can make a class book from Wemberly Worried about "I use to worry about ______."

    - I made felt cut outs to go with the stories so that the students can retell the stories on a flannel board.

    - Do a group writing activity to find reoccuring characters in the many books like Lilly, Wilson, Chester, etc.

    - You could buy everyone sunglasses out of those 6 pairs for a buck packs so that you could have "Movie star reading the room" glasses.
