{Rechenka’s Eggs} is about our favorite character, Babushka. Babushka is preparing her beautiful patterned eggs for the Easter festival when she takes in Rechenka, an injured goose who ends up being very beneficial to her.

I love using these read aloud as a re-teach or as a center for my class! It makes it so easy when I keep a center consistent and the kids already know what is expected!

The struggle is REAL when it comes to writing! Graphic organizers save me, ha! 
Since we are learning persuasive writing this week, I tied that into this story. The kids are going to think about what they wish Rechenka would leave them in their Easter egg basket.

Okay y’all I am obsessed with QR code comprehension, y’all! I stick these in a center and the kids can use the book to find text evidence and check their answer when they’re done. 
Side note: I am aware that the picture says “Fiona’s Luck”. I noticed it as I started typing this blog. It’s Monday and I am obviously illiterate. I have changed the document in the file!

Babushka saw that hurt goose and took it in. Rechenka (the goose) repaid the kindness in return.
