Love this book by Madonna. Any activities out there to do with 5th graders?

Author's purpose?

They could write a reader's response to explain the author's purpose for writing this story. Hopefully they will explain the lesson we can all learn from this story and how they will apply it to their own lives. You might need to edit after they have written the first part about the author's purpose and encourage them to write more about how this lesson applies to them and what they will do with this suggestion of how to live one's life.

I read this book on one of the first days of school to reinforce that you can't take back what you've already said. After reading, I have each student put a drop of food coloring into a bottle and we talk about how we can't return the water to it's original state. I keep the bottle of water on my desk as a reminder all year.

Our guidance counselor read this with our sixth graders and then asked them to create their own display to go along with the statement "spreading a rumor is like . . ."

The example from the book is "Spreading a rumor is like letting all of the feathers out of a pillow, you can't get them back."

Students came up with some really great lines and creative displays to go with them.

Hawkteacher! I am expanding my beginning of the year resources for building community and this sounds like a good activity.

I LOVE this book...I do it with my first graders and we talk about what lesson Tommy learned and what we think the author is trying to tell US.

I read about this book two years ago and read it to my first class of 4th graders. They enjoyed it. I had found an activity about toothpaste that I tried. You will need a paper plate. Each student squeezes a little paste out on to the plate. (I tell them about the size of a pea.) Then we discuss how we can't get it back into the tube. I guess you could use whipped cream, too.

Too cute I could give them sample size toothpaste tubes to keep. I'm going to check with my dentist for freebees

I use this book to teach synthesizing. The students have 4 post it notes or a piece of paper divided in for 4 sections. The teacher divides the book into 4 sections and stops at the end of each section and asks the students to write what they are thinking. Then the class discusses what they are thinking. The teacher then continues reading until there is another section to stop. At the end we discuss the whole moral of the story about not being able to take back what you have said.

I'm getting ready to use this book next week. I think I might have my class make a class book using this activity. Thanks so much for the idea.
