Gearing up with Gooney!

September 16, 2012

As you prepare for the upcoming week, we'd like you to check out the latest edition to our store.

We had so much fun creating this book unit. Lois Lowry makes the classroom so fun! In each chapter of Gooney Bird Is So Absurd, Mrs. Pidgeon begins each morning with a poem. If your students are stuck in believing poetry is booooring (like Principal Leroy) this is a great way to get them excited about rhythm and rhyme! 

In our new unit, you will find chapter questions (complete with answer keys)...

A summary page...

Vocabulary cards...

Some fun extension activities...


And a poetry section...


We've included poetry covered in the story (short poems, a haiku, couplets, limericks, and list poems) and a few extras for fun (cinquain, wishing poem, and autobiographical poem)!

Our exclusive freebie this Sunday is an extra from this unit. Lois Lowry describes some outlandish outfits in every Gooney Bird Greene book. This simple page gives students the chance to illustrate the outfit and give it a silly name.

Stop by our store today to grab our first Gooney Bird book unit for 15% off! Be sure to follow our Teachers pay Teachers store to be the first to know when our next unit is ready!
