Side A

The Wind Blew Book Cover
Before the Story

The title of the story is The Wind Blew.  What is happening in the picture on the cover? What happens when you go outside on a windy day? Do you think the man will get his umbrella back? Will the little girl find her balloon again? Let’s find out!

During the Story

This is a story that reads rhythmically and builds in suspense so you might not want to stop for questions. There are some words that will be unfamiliar (see reverse side) that you can introduce before, during, or after the first reading.

After the Story

Talk about what happened on the next to the last page when the wind mixed everything up and threw it all down. How do you think the people were feeling when they got the wrong stuff? Let’s make up another ending for this story. Can we change it so that it’s a happy ending for everyone?
