READING/WRITING
A Porcupine Named Fluffy
by Helen Lester

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: Nibley, Utah
Date Submitted: March 17, 2001

Have your students make up their own books based after A Porcupine Named Fluffy. This works really well when studying a unit on synonyms and antonyms. First, have them choose an animal. For example, one may choose a giraffe. Then have them list all the words that describe a giraffe. For example, "tall", "slim", "long neck", "four legs", etc. Then have them choose one word and write its antonym. For instance, one may say the antonym of "tall" is "short." Now they have a title for their new book! It may be called, A Giraffe Named Shorty!
