Character 26- Pinkerbelle

Pinkalicious by Victoria Kahn and Elizabeth Kahn

Book Synopsis: A girl who loves pink eats so many pink cupcakes she turns pink.

Instructional Focus: (Numbers are for the Virginia Standards of Learning, generally Reading/English)

Cause and Effect,(4.5G, 5.5J) Draw Conclusions, (2.8I, 3.5G, 4.5H, 5.5I) Infer,(3.5G, 4.5H, 5.5I) Problem and Solution  (2.8F, 3.5H, 4.5E)

Creating the Costume: A pink shirt, pink tights and a pink skirt were brought together with a crown, wings and wand from the dollar store.  Add some crazy pigtails and “Pinkerbelle” is complete.

Delivery:  I got a lot of “Tooth Fairy” guesses when they saw the costume for this one.  I had one group working on making character inferences (starting with the age of the main character.)  Another group sequenced and did cause and effect.  I really liked how this was a book not many of my older students knew, so they actually had an opportunity to make predictions and see if they came true.
