Book Title: Dan, The Flying Man

Author: Joy Cowley

Illustrator: Annie Dickenson
Summary:

This is a fictional story about Dan, a flying man. As Dan flies over a town, mountains, the sea and more, he challenges people to catch him-and they finally do!

Before Reading:

  1. Ask students about the parts of the book. Have them point out the front and back covers and the title/author/illustrator.

  2. Have them predict what the story might be about

During Reading:

  1. Remind students that we start reading at the left-hand side and ‘return sweep’ back to the left at the end of each line.

  2. Read the story the first time and have students just listen to the story

  3. Reread the story making sure to point to each word; see if students can identify the words that rhyme (Dan/man/can; crane/train; trees/seas)

After Reading:

  1. WORD FIND”

Have a student use the magnifying glass to come up and find a word on one of the pages. Remind them that in order to find where the word starts and ends they should look for the ‘finger’ spaces between words. Give a few students a turn to find a word with the magnifying glass.

  1. STORY WHEEL”

Have students colour their story wheel and cut it out. Put the wheels together and have students use the pictures on the wheel to retell the story.
