Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse and the Action Cycle (Grades 2-3)


Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes (Hodder Children’s Books, 1998) is an excellent book to use to model reflection and teach the action cycle. I use this lesson to set up expectations for reflective behavior in our classroom for the year. We then keep blank reflection sheets for the students to use when they must take a “time out.” Students must fill it out the sheet before they can return to the regular activity.
