The Lonley Scarecrow - FREEBIE


Last week we finished the week by learning more about Fall and Scarecrows.  I read The Lonely Scarecrow by Tim Preston.

This book is about a little scarecrow that is so lonely.  No one wants to be his friend because he looks so scary.  Until winter comes and he is covered in SNOW, then he is NO longer scary.  He isn’t a scarecrow…. he is a snowman.  Now the animals aren’t afraid of him and they want to be his friend.

After reading the story, we worked on recalling the scarecrows feeling and how those feelings changed throughout the story.  Common Core Standards:  RL 1.4 Identify words and phrases in stories or poems that suggest feelings or appeal to the sentences.  And RL 1.7 Use illustrations and details in a story to describe its characters, settings, or events.

During word work this week we practice finding and writing words from the word wall.  You can find this activity here!
