  • Verbally convey the meaning of the story

Guiding Ideas

After listening to the book, " Only One You," by Linda Kranz, discuss some of the vocabulary used in the story.  Ask the students what these words would look like, feel like and/or what they mean.

Student Activities

After brainstorming the meanings of the words in the book, the students will take the ideas into MCEE and create a world where they can see, feel, hear and interact with the "words of empowerment;" i.e. brave, listen, circle back, breathe, etc.  The students can join worlds or work alone to create a "Only One You," world.

Performance Expectations

The students will show, through the use of MCEE, that they are able to show/display or express the meanings of the words and what hey mean to them, used to empower the "fish" in the book.
