Educator resources:

Story extensions:

1.       On a separate sheet of paper, draw a cloud shape you’d like to be.
Discuss why you picked this shape for your cloud?
Would you want to stay the same shape, or change like Lola does?

2.       Which of the clouds in Lola Shapes the Sky would you want for your friend? Why?

3.       Story starter – Envision a cloud shape (use the shape from #1 if you’d like).
a.       Is your cloud the main character?
b.      Who else is in the story?
c.       Is your cloud a helper, or someone/something that needs help?
d.      What problem does your main character have?

3.       Read Lola Shapes the Sky slowly and find examples of:
Alliteration
Consonance
Internal Rhyme
Onomatopoeia
Double meanings (“blew the other clouds away” “Lola thought cold thoughts” “you should just—evaporate” “Feeling low”)
