One of the best things about birthdays is being able to celebrate them with friends. Help Danny from MaryRuth Books celebrate Abby’s birthday during August with a special set of 9 titles.
Danny and Abby have been friends for a long time. Help us celebrate that friendship and Abby’s birthday with a special set of 9 titles, featuring Abby and Danny. Titles in this set include 7- small (5.5 x 5.5″) books and 2- 5.5 x 8″ chapter books, Danny’s Big Adventure and Moving. Get all nine books for a very friendly price of $40 (less than $4.50 each).
All of the titles in Abby’s August birthday set have been evaluated and leveled by Fountas & Pinnell as appropriate for Early Emergent (levels A-C) to Early Fluent readers (levels I-M). Guided reading levels are based on the F&P Text Level Gradient. Increasing levels support young readers and encourage them as they progress. Each of the books in Abby’s August Set has a lesson plan available online as a free download. The chapter book, Moving, also has a coordinating writing activity where students write dialogue for Danny and Abby that retells what happened in the story.
In Moving Danny is moving to a new house. He is sad and knows he’s going to miss his friend, Abby. Because he worries that she will forget him, Danny decides to make a memory jar. He gives the jar to Abby before his move so that she can remember the special times they shared.
- For a fun writing activity, print out pictures with speech bubbles from Moving and have students write dialogue for the character(s) in each of the photos that retells what happened in the story.
