I made this pack to go with the book “the house that Jack built”
With these fun anti worksheets, I introduced the ideas of story structure-charachters and setting. Also, how to write your own version of a story based on another story.
There’s a lot of learning with this pack, but it’s conceptual introduction as a literacy unit while the children have fun with story details.
I did different pieces of this pack/unit at different times. I read the book a few times, leaving a week or so between. Sometimes the children said, “the house that Jack built” after each page. We did all the pack activities as well as a block building activity, over the course of a month.
Below are photo examples, and at the end will be a table of contents and the direct download.
P.S. The unit is versatile, use some or all pieces, integrate your own style, interpration and its easy to differentiate/mixed groups.
