Rhino was grouchy and grumpy all the time. How rude!
Will Rhino ever snap out of his grumpy mood?
Shared reading is a collaborative reading experience where students read along with a teacher who models the skills of a proficient reader. By marrying rhythmical, rhyming text with rigorous, focused discussions, shared reading works to build the reservoir of language and skills that are essential for reading and writing success. Grumpy Rhino also offers authentic, embedded support for the social-emotional learning competency of recognizing social supports.
Enjoy this JillE Literacy Shared Book with children and use the five-day lesson plan along with the built-in teaching panels to focus on a different teaching opportunity each day:
|DAY 1||Use authentic, text-based discussion to support comprehension, oral language, and social-emotional learning.|
|DAY 2||Identify and work with engaging and challenging vocabulary from the text.|
|DAY 3||Point out elements of the text that can help students read with fluency.|
|DAY 4||Reinforce phonemic awareness and phonics skills in the context of reading.|
|DAY 5||Give every student an opportunity to practice oral, written, and visual language by responding to the text.|
Grumpy Rhino is part of the Grade 1 whole-class resources but can be enjoyed by children and teachers of all ages!

JillE Literacy was created by educator, author, and international literacy consultant Jill Eggleton, QSO. Since her earliest days as a classroom teacher in New Zealand, Jill has known that there is no room for struggle, pain, or boredom in reading.
Teachers need books that work as hard as they do. Today’s teachers have more demands on their time than ever. JillE Literacy lets teachers spend less time planning and more time teaching.
Engagement is key. There is no room for struggle, pain, or boredom in reading. To engage young readers, teachers need books and poems that spark emotion, imagination, critical thinking, curiosity, and creativity.
Foundational literacy skills need to be explicitly and systematically taught. You cannot read if you can’t decode accurately. However, you cannot learn to read by just learning to decode. JillE Literacy embeds explicit instruction and repeated practice in foundational literacy skills throughout every text, uniquely using highly engaging books and poems rather than the usual dull, decodable texts.
