Story Time With Charlie the Puppet and Reading Comprehension Game

Denise Mears, BS Elementary Education
Average rating:4.8Number of reviews:(14)
We will read a book about Melvin, who learns not to throw fits when he doesn't get his way. Charlie, the puppet, will interact with the learners and then compete against them in a reading comprehension quiz game.

Class experience

Students will learn that throwing a fit is not an appropriate way to respond when they don't get their way and are disappointed. They will be encouraged to talk with their parents about what is an appropriate way to respond without keeping their frustration bottled up inside.
Students will become familiar with answering basic recall as well as higher level thinking questions to help with reading comprehension skills.
I earned a BS degree in Education from University of Maryland and started work on my Master's Degree to be a Reading Specialist at Johns Hopkins University, but didn't get to complete it once our children came along. However, I have taught children from preschool through 12th grade in a variety of subjects, including reading. Throughout the last few decades I've been teaching, reading stories with children, engaging them in the content, and teaching them thinking skills.  I've been blessed to do this as a classroom teacher, tutor, and a mother. Reading to children is one of my favorite things to do! I have added Charlie and Charlotte, the puppets, in the last 2 years in my tutoring business to make reading even more enjoyable and fun. My students adore the puppets and enjoy learning with them.
No supplies are needed. We will be using a Quiz Show game that I created on, but the students do not need remote control of the screen or any access to the site. The game will be displayed on our shared screen for all to view.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
"You Get What You Get" by Julie Gassman is the book read in this class.
