A HUGE Freebie and Character Unit

 
Preview the Book!



Pink Tiara Cookies for Three does a wonderful job at teaching students that exclusion is a form of bullying.  There are wonderful connections to be made within the story!  I was able to create a wonderful lesson on character development.

I created this terrific character unit to align with award winning author Maria Dismondy's story Pink Tiara Cookies for Three. Maria's message in this story is how bullying can be subtle but hurtful. This book tackles the concept of "Three's a Crowd" and how children have the tendency to exclude others.

I've created posters with the theme of friendship, self-esteem, individuality, and inclusion which are the primary themes within the story. You'll find information and links on bullying. I also created posters for character traits with featured lessons and reproducibles to align with the various traits. Students will work to develop adjectives describing the main characters. Also provided are graphic organizers to make generalizations through inferences to determine character development from the beginning to the end of the story. Don't forget to follow up your studies with a pink party (flyer included) to celebrate a bully free zone.

Still want more... you can watch and listen as Maria reads this adorable story.  You will be hooked instantly.  







If you are eager to purchase  a copy of the book, check out Maria's website first!  When you purchase through her website, you will receive an autographed copy. Please visit Maria's website for additional information.  You can also purchase Pink Tiara Cookies for Three at Amazon!
