Oliver Jeffers has great short stories for all the letters. Jeffers had a run away hit with The Day the Crayons Quit, and I liked this one as well. How creative he is! I loved this video about his creative process! Even with older kids I think it would be fun to talk about the elements of a short story and have them create a short story about an alphabet letter. A great starting point might be to read The Day the Crayons Quit for a bit of inspiration. After that it would be great to share Jeffers' alphabet stories. Or you could even read the A story and then have them pick a letter to work on…
Here is a sample from the book,
"Victor was used to being victorious.
But recently he was defeated
and retreated into hiding under
stairs where he sits, plotting
And again there is a whole story which could be elaborated by the students-how was he defeated, by whom, and how we he get his revenge??? Lots of possibilities with this book!!!
I have more books to share so stay tuned!!!
