Draw-and-Write Class Project Inspired by Tiny Rabbit’s Big Wish
In Margarita Engle’s Tiny Rabbit’s Big Wish, the titular tiny rabbit wants so badly to grow as big as the mountains and be as fierce as the other animals around him. The problem? He’s a tiny rabbit, and he most likely won’t grow to mountain size!
The tiny rabbit eventually learns to appreciate the parts of himself that make him unique, such as his big, tall ears and their powerful sense of hearing that help keep him safe from predators.
In this write-and-draw activity, students can show their appreciation for a person in their lives by highlighting their unique and special qualities.
This activity helps students build text-to-self connections through examining how the events of the story relate to their own and others’ lives and experiences.
This activity is inspired by library media specialist Tiffany Williams. Watch Tiffany’s full Book Talks video for more ideas on how to use Tiny Rabbit’s Big Wish in your classroom, including why this book is a perfect addition to a school or home library.
How do you help your students celebrate what makes them unique? We’d love to hear from you! Please share with the Scholastic Book Clubs community on Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #ScholasticBookClubs.
