Be the Literature

After reading Patricia Polacco’s Chicken Sunday, the kids and I made our own hat shop, and May shot this video of the play story. As the children either watched it on the camera screen (which they liked to do immediately), on the classroom computers, or at circle time, our version of Chicken Sunday gained value as a reading text.  Since  we used some of the same reading response strategies with this documentary clip that we used when reading trade books, like those of Patricia Polacco, our own stories gained new status as learning texts.
