I am so excited to share with you 2 characters from The Joy Cowley Collection
Mr. Tang and Smarty Pants.
Mr. Tang has a taxi cab in which he goes on a variety of adventures. The taxi cab has a variety of special features and can do some pretty incredible things. In each different story the cab introduces the children to different phonics skills as well as different vocabulary. It can add skis when it snows, jumping legs at the zoo, or become a submarine in the ocean.
Smarty Pants is a silly clown that can teach children about a variety of emotions in Smarty Pants at the Circus. In Smarty No Pants, the silly clown loses his pants in the wind, but never gives up. Lastly in Smarty Pants at the Talent Show, Smarty pants shows the listener to just be your self.
My favorite part of all of these books is it comes with a page full of information about what you can do with each book. Here are a couple of examples in the back of the book.
Each description includes:
Features of the text
Before Reading (making meaning and analyzing the text)
During Reading and
After Reading (Using the Text, making meaning, and cracking the code)
