While eating the popcorn lets “POP” some ideas out about how it looks, tastes, smells, feels, sounds and where it’s found etc.. Write these ideas in the surrounding popcorn bubbles on your handout. Guided Practice: Guided Practice Now that are maps complete lets choose 6 popcorn circles (ideas/facts) to create our short story about popcorn. As a class lets make sentences about the 6 facts.
