Moving Beyond the Page 6-8 – Concept 1, Unit 2, Lesson 2: A Good Citizen
Today we went over cause and effect concepts. We reviewed actions and consequences again in a little more detail than we had done previously (in Unit 1, lesson 12). We role played different situations to learn what kind of consequences each would generate. The most enjoyable activity was reading “Lilly’s Plastic Purple Purse” by Kevin Henkes. It’s a delightful story about a happy, vivacious, little mouse eager to learn and share with others, even if not at the most appropriate times … What a lovely way to learn about the consequences our actions will lead to. We then reviewed the story’s different situations, and compared how AA and Lilly were alike or different. Lastly, we played a memory game matching actions to consequences.
