View video (Writing, speaking, listening, viewing).During Reading: Thumbs-up (pick-out) when they see a job or tool as you read the story. After Reading: Put In their ideas about the jobs and tools needed to make and sell cupcakes. Make a shared digital story with one job/tool per page. PowerPoint + soundAfter Reading: Make pictures of all of the jobs and tools from the story. Place them inside a paper bag. Decorate the bag with words and images. As you take out images, discuss how they were used in story.Research: They create (produce) their own text (recipe, digital story, story, compare/contrast, poster, etc.)

  • Brown Bag IdeasMake pictures of all of the jobs and tools from the story. Place them inside the bag. Decorate the bag with words and images. As you take out images, discuss how they were used in story.Make puppets to retell parts of the story. Students do a retell of the story based on econ-cepts. Brown bag with characters and props from book for retell. Decorate the bag with images and words from the story. The bag is used to illustrate the main concepts:Wants: what did characters want in the story?Goods/services: what were examples of goods/services?Money: What did the different characters use as currency/money?
