Have you read the book Zombies Don’t Eat Veggies!? I found this precious read aloud on Storyline Online last month and knew that I had to add it to our library. It’s about a zombie named Mo who loves to eat vegetables even though that’s not a part of his zombie diet. It takes the reader on a journey of Mo feeling different and alone to feeling accepted and loved.
Israel was working on character traits and feelings last week, so Zombies Don’t Eat Veggies was the perfect book to utilize. He chose a character trait to describe Mo. Here you can see that he said “Mo was creative when he created a soup made of veggies making it look like blood.”
Israel also described how Mo was feeling at the beginning and end of the story. As you can tell, Israel loves to use ALL THE EMOJIS!!
One of the last activities that Israel completed was going through the steps of a directed drawing to draw the main character. After drawing Mo, he chose five character traits to place around the main character. Israel said that Mo was nice, creative, unique, honest, and respectful.
I love using directed drawings as a way to wrap-up our learning. Adding the character traits around Mo was a great way to incorporate what he was learning throughout the week!
