Gédéon va à l’école is the cute story of a goose that ends up going to school with his friend Sophie. The illustrations are beautiful, allowing students to easily use context clues to determine what is happening in the text. With simple sentences, this is a story that I often use within the first few months of Grade 1 Immersion.
In Grade 2, I used Gédéon va à l’école and the other book in the series, Gédéon, to introduce my students to story retelling. Both stories have a clear beginning, middle and end and are easy to illustrate. I generally fold a paper into three parts and have students illustrate that way. My students also love using chart paper so I sometimes let partners work on the task together on the big chart paper and they can then present their ideas to the class.
I also like to do a little art project and make our own Gédéon.
You can find the instructions for this art project at Art Projects for Kids.
What other books do you use to create art projects?
