Miss Rumphius is the story of Alice Rumphius, who longed to travel the world, live in a house by the sea, and do something to make the world more beautiful. The countless lupines that bloom along the coast of Maine are the legacy of the real Miss Rumphius, the Lupine Lady, who scattered lupine seeds everywhere she went. Children (& adults!) love the rhythmic, quiet quality to the story and it is easy for them to understand setting a goal, then working towards fulfilling each goal.
I found this read-aloud video below, which I'm sure your class would love to hear/watch. Only one little gripe I have: the narrator keeps reading "lupines" as "loo-pine", when it is actually pronounced "loo-pin". How do I know this? I used to also read "loo-pines" when reading this book aloud, when one of my very sweet second grade students said in a very confidential whisper (because she didn't want to embarrass me), "I've seen those flowers before and I think my dad said they're loo-pins." After checking the pronunciation in the dictionary, I admitted my mistake to my class! But now every time I see the word(s), I know how it should be pronounced!!
An acronym I use with my class to teach goal setting is GOAL. After teaching each step, we put a copy of GOAL in our student portfolios. You can download a copy of this sheet here. There is a color page, or if you're like me and don't have a colored ink printer at school, there's a black & white page to be printed on colored paper!
