Friends~I made the cutest thing for back to school! I have been working on a new author study to use with my class the first few weeks of school. I chose Helen Lester because her stories are wonderful for teaching character education and setting up a community of learners.
My very favorite Helen Lester book is titled, Hurty Feelings. Besides having the sweetest cover, the character Fragility is the best. Basically, Fragility gets her feelings hurt easily and the other hippos don't want to play with her. She meets Rudy, the Bully Elephant and ends up hurting his feelings and she gets a taste of how she has been behaving. Click the image below to hear the story!
I had so much fun creating activities for this story but my Hurty Box turned out so darn cute that I had to share it with you. Watch the video below to learn more about how I am using The Hurty Box in class in August!
You can totally make your own cards to go inside or you can check out my new unit on TPT. Just click the link below! While you are there be sure to download the preview because it is a sample of 4 pages from my unit!
It is filled with 31pages of activities to use with the following 5 Helen Lester books:
