Jack and the Hungry Giant Eat Right with My Plate based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
A twist on a familiar tale. The tale starts out like the traditional fairy tale but soon we are surprised to learn that the giant doesn’t want to eat Jack but instead together create a healthy meal. This book is perfect for K-2 classrooms when teaching healthy eating, but don’t stop there. It can also be used: • at a health fair. • by a gym teacher when teaching anytime vs. some time foods. • to compare/contract two texts (multiple versions of the fairy tale). • to expand students’ fluency through ellipses and word size. • in writing to model how authors play with word size and location on the page. • to set up a class debate on it corn is a vegetable (as stated in the book) or a grain. Loreen Leedy also includes additional activity pages on her website as well as a view of sample pages. There is also supplementary information on the USDA MyPlate program that compliments this book. 5 stars!
