Trout Are Made of Trees Sound and Sequence Activity

Here is an activity shared by author/educator Shirley Smith Duke, who presented it at the NAEYC Conference in Dallas in Nov 2008 in her 6+Traits session with author Anastasia Suen. Thank you Shirley and Anastasia!
Trout are Made of Trees
Small to large, sequence
Using sounds.
Make a list of the sound words. Have the students practice making the sounds. Read the story and have the children make the sounds. Choose their favorite sound and write sentences about other things that could make that same or similar sound.
For older students, make a list of the steps in the food chain portrayed in the book together. Write a paragraph explaining the steps in this food chain and showing the relationship of each step. Then have the students write in additional sound effects. Have them try to make up different ones than those used in the book. Challenge them to spell the sound effect.
