The Hat

Jan Brett's The Hat is a yearly read aloud and book study I've always done in Kindergarten and First Grade. The story teaches so many lessons, is humorous, has a winter theme, and is written by a fantastic author!
 I've created an 88 page book study packed with activities to do as a companion to The Hat. It's aligned with the Common Core, TEKS, and VA SOL standards.

 MAKING PREDICTIONS
Making predictions is an important literacy skill! It shows students' ability to inference, using the pictures in the story, and to dig deep into their own insights.
