A Letter to Amy Teaching Plan

This A Letter to Amy Teaching Plan lesson plan also includes:

Peter wants to send a special birthday party invitation to Amy, but a lot can happen between the front door and the mail box. Read the children's book A Letter to Amy by Ezra Jack Keats with your class to find out what happens, extending student learning with this series of supplemental activities. From creating a classroom post office and making wind socks, to graphing children's favorite birthday wishes, a number of options are provided that allow for cross-curricular connections with math, science, and social studies. This lesson would serve as a great start to a science unit on weather, introducing learners to common types of weather and the impact they have on people's lives.
