Planning Thought Processes Context of Exploration This activity is being chosen to support language arts development and to go along with the day at the beach ocean theme the children have shown an interest in. The activity will be done at tables during journal time after we have read a story on the circle carpet. Rationale This activity has been chosen to support verbal and linguistic learners and language arts development. The specific story and activity has been chosen based on the current day at the beach ocean theme the children have shown an interest in. Anticipating challenges Some children may not want to draw about the story so I will be remind them that this should not be a picture of their friends or their pet but only pictures of things from the book. 5. Materials The Rainbow fish book Colored pencils Crayons Story paper or just plain white paper depending on the developmental stages of the children in the class

6. Activity Procedure A. Motivation/Introduction - The activity will be presented in story time and during group journal time at tables - We will read the book during story time circle - We can discuss the story and what characters and parts of the story the children liked most and why - Give them instructions for the activity then direct them to move to the tables to do the activity B. Concept exploration - I will ask them to think back about what happened in the story, the characters, and the pictures (illustrations, scenes) in the book, and to think about what each character said or did. (We can discuss the story and what characters and parts of the story the children liked most and why, if the children need help generating ideas, hopefully they will have their own ideas though) - I will explain to them that they are going to use colored pencils or crayons on their paper to draw (illustrate) a scene from the story and write in their own words what is happening in the scene they drew or if they cant write with invented spelling they can dictate to me and I will write it down C. Inquiry (Open Ended Questions) Which character in the story was your favorite? Why? What did you like about that character? What was your favorite part of the story? Which character is most like you? Which page, illustration or scene did you like most? Why? What do you think was the most important thing that happened in the story? D. Closure - After each child has drawn their illustration or scene they can present their picture to the class and tell us what they wrote or what their scene is about (their words may not match what they wrote). E. Assessment - I will determine the activity is completed when they have completed their drawing and written or dictated about their scene and we have presented them. I will document their work by making copies for their portfolios and video of their presentation if they present to the class. Extension Ideas - We can further explore this story and extend the activities by making our own rainbow fish in the art center with templates or our own fish drawings and colored paper or colored tape and foil or sequins for the shiny scales.
