Mo Willems and his Naked Mole Rat (GREAT beginning of year read with a FREEBIE or 2!)


We've been working on a Mo Wilems' author study (we LOVE his books, BTW!) and it just wouldn't be complete without the Naked Mole Rat book because we all know how much students crack up at anything having to do with nakedness and underwear (and this book includes a semblance of BOTH-double score!). The lesson in this book is great for the beginning of the year--you don't all have to like or do the same things to be friends and have a great time and it's okay to be different. But, if you want to extend it (and really gross them out at the same time!) show them pictures of REAL naked mole rats:O
My students love the "draw and respond" work we do so much, I just had to create a Naked Mole Rat one.  This is going to be part of a kit with the whole Mo Willems' clan, but, for now, I'm giving a sample version to you FREE to try in your classroom!  The kits include many options for you to choose from, but I just provided a blank one that you can write a question, model a sentence for students to copy OR whatever else you might have up your sleeve to get your students writing about Naked Mole Rats!

My students were so interested in the naked mole rats, I took it to the next level (gotta love student driven teaching!) and went on a search for an informational text for them that I honestly didn't think I'd find...low and behold, I found a mini book created by a teacher on TpT that was PeRFECT for them.  It was a one pager that you fold into quarters... I knew it needed to be larger for my babies, so I enlarged it onto 11x17 copy paper and voila! they all had an informational text for their book box! Click here if you would like to extend your reading of Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed with this FREEBIE! Ha ha!  Thank you for this fabulous resource Learning in Wonderland!

 

Here is a quick snippet of a video that shows naked mole rats in all their glory (um...grossness), but they are very intriguing as well!
