Little Red Writing is a parody of sorts to Little Red Riding Hood and could be used in a fractured fairy tale or parody lesson...however, in my classroom this read aloud jumpstarted our conversation on the importance of word choice in our writing.
My students were in awe of Melissa Sweet's detailed illustrations and hidden WOW words. Our favorite part was of course the villain in the story was not a wolf..but a terribly hungry pencil sharpener. So cute!
My third graders enjoyed this story immensely and I'm sure yours will too!
