Perfectly Norman by Tom Percival

“Perfectly Norman,” by Tom Percival is a story about a young boy who suddenly has a new part on his body, wings. This book teaches children being different is okay.

To bring the students into this reading experience with me, I have two movements words for them to listen for. The words are wings and coat. When they hear the word wings, (tell the students to flap their arms like a bird.) When they hear the word coat, ( tell the students to wrap their arms around themselves.)

After the story start over with the first page of the book and instead of reading talk about the pictures, the feelings, and what they think normal looks like.

Wings

By Vicky Manning

Oh I wished I had a colorful pair of wings.

Oh how happy I would be.

Because if I had a colorful pair of wings,

I could fly high up in a tree.

Oh I wished I had a colorful pair of wings.

Oh how fast I could be.

Because if I had a colorful pair of wings,

No one could fly faster than me.

Can you?

By Vicky Manning

Can you make a normal face?

Normal face, normal face

Can you make a normal face?

123!

Can you laugh a normal laugh?

Normal laugh, normal laugh

Can you laugh a normal laugh?

123!

Can you dance a normal dance?

Normal dance, normal dance

Can you dance a normal dance?

123!
