It's Not a Stick!

K-2 DCG students read Not a Stick! by Antoinette Portis. It is one of our Goldfish-nominated books for 2011-2012.

We really wanted students to see that the book is all about celebrating kids' imagination. In the book a pig finds a stick. It is quickly followed by an uncreative, literal voice telling the pig to be careful with that stick. The pig spends the book showing the voice all of the different things he imagines the stick to be.

After reading this fun book, the kids had a chance to use their imaginations and show us that "It's Not a Stick"'s a ____________ by creating their own pictures. You can access the handout HERE.
