The Very Greedy Bee

 The Very Greedy Bee by Steve Smallman is a great 'Read Aloud' for your students. 
In the story Greedy Bee learns a valuable lesson about being kind and treating others the way you would like to be treated. 

 We talked about character traits and how Greedy bee changed in the story.

 We wrote about how Greedy Bee's character changed at the beginning and end of the story and the lesson he learned.

We made the Greedy Bee and I displayed it with the Character Traits activity to create a bright, cheerful display.

This story offered so many teaching and learning opportunities.

This story was perfect to demonstrate the use of adjectives. 
We looked at the author's use of adjectives throughout the story.

As a class we found the adjectives that described the nouns in the story.

My students completed worksheets about nouns and adjectives and then used those words in alphabetical order.

I created many different activities about this story. You can take a peek at them  HERE  if you are interested.
