Reflection: Intervention and Extension Little Pea and Eating a Healthy ABC - Section 2: Procedure


After doing this activity with my class, I found that there were some letters that were  challenging for my students to supply a food word.  I supplied food ideas: Q-quince, U-ugli fruit, X-Xanthan Gum, Y-Yellow squash. 

I have more than 26 children in my class,  and since there are only twenty-six letters in the alphabet, I  created duplicate pages so that everyone had a chance to participate.  The letter "B" worked well as a duplicate because we could come up with different food words. 

If you do not have 26 students, some children might need to do two pages. 

Another idea for this story would be to lead the children in the direction of journal writing: After the story, we talk about how Little Pea felt about the candies that his parents wanted him to eat. What do we think our character was thinking about when he was wanting one thing to eat, but was being served something that he did not like.  I ask the children if they had ever been in a situation like this.  I tell the children that when we have experiences like these in our life, we can use these experiences as ideas for our story writing.
