Zinnia and Dot

Zinnia and Dot by Lisa Campbell Ernst           

Two hens who live in the same henhouse, but never get along, find themselves fighting over one egg.  The illustrations and rich vocabulary make this one a favorite. 

Theme: Cooperation

Teaching Idea: Prediction 

As you read the story aloud, stop and ask what will happen next.  This book is full of opportunities for making predictions.  As students guess what will happen next,  point out how using prior knowledge helps the reader make logical predictions.
