Craft Tables for You — Part II of III

This is the second in a series of three posts that include craft tables you can download for use during your conferences or strategy lessons.  If you missed last week’s post, which talked about what craft tables are and how to create them, then click here to read it now.

This week I’m sharing two more of my students’ craft tables with you.  Hannah Wambach teaches Kindergarten and created a craft table for Bun Bun Button by Patricia Polacco.  Marti Smith is an eighth grade Language Arts teacher who designed a craft table for One Green Apple by Eve Bunting.  Just like last week, both women have given me the permission to share their craft tables in this forum.  If you download one or both of the craft tables below, please take the time to leave a comment for them on this post since they put a lot of time and effort into creating these craft tables, which was the final project for the course I taught at Penn State Harrisburg over the summer.

Check out part iii of this craft table series next Thursday, September 13th.  I’ll share the craft table the entire class worked on together for Happy Like Soccer by Maribeth Boelts.

  1. These craft tables show so many teaching points available with these books. This will be a wonderful example for me to share with teachers who don’t realize there is so much in picture books that they can use. These are awesome! Thanks for sharing.


  2. Thanks for sharing these craft tables and ideas. They help a lot if you read these books or give you ideas for others. Thanks! Thanks again!


  3. I don’t know the first book, but after the details shared, I’ll look for it! And I love One Green Apple, so will really appreciate this craft table & all the ideas included. Thank you again for sharing the wealth you helped create, Stacey!


  4. Thank you for the wonderful work!! What a help it is have these set up for a particular book! Thank you, also, for introducing me to both books. I had not read them before, and they are wonderful! Can’t wait to use these in my classroom!


  5. Thanks for both of these craft tables, wonderful authors that my students and I can learn from. I am amazed at the details that Hannah and Marti pulled out of each book. Here’s hoping my school library has these books. While I know both authors, the books are new to me. All the more exciting!
