Free Downloadable Discussion Guide and Activity Inspired by Interrupting Chicken
by Alana Pedalino
When you’re super-excited, being patient can be difficult! Especially for little red chickens who really, really want to hear a bedtime story.
After reading Interrupting Chicken by David Ezra Stein with your class, encourage your students to explore positive behavior with this free downloadable discussion guide. These thoughtful questions will help students make the connection that while interrupting may feel satisfying in the moment, being patient often has a more positive end result!
Once you’ve hosted your class discussion, you can follow up with this fun activity where students can write and/or illustrate a bedtime story.
