Response to Literature - Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse

Kevin Henkes has been our author study for the past few weeks. We have been reading, comparing, discussing, and retelling such works as "Chrysanthemum", "Julius, Baby of the World", and "Shiela Rae the Brave". However, there is one book that stands above the rest in our class, and that is "Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse." In Writer's Workshop, students have been discovering great beginnings, retelling the main parts of the story, and finishing with an ending which may include a connection or comment on why they liked the book. This is PM's writing and retelling of Lilly...enjoy!

My favorite part of Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse was when she got her stuff back from Mr. Slinger. My favorite character was Lilly.

We thoroughly enjoyed Peyton's video. What a great reader. She did a wonderful job of retelling the story
Peyton's mom sent it to us because we live in Iowa and don't get to see Peyton very often. Thank you so much.

My students and I think that your response is awesome! Your retelling was full of details and quotes. We especially enjoyed your illustrations. "You took a huge risk and that's cool!" stated G.K.E. in our class. Wow is all we can say!
