Something from nothing is a beautiful repetitive reader that is based on an old folktale. 

A boy's mother tells him to throw away his blanket. Instead the boy takes it to his grandfather to "fix" and the grandfather who is a tailor - makes a jacket.  Then when the jacket wears out he takes it to his grandfather who makes a ..... etc ....

Wonderful message. Use with the vocabulary matching and sequencing worksheet attached. Also an additional lesson plan. 

Get students thinking about ways they can transform their old things into new!

Also use the items (cut them out) for students to retell the story.  How the blanket changed! 

Attachments:

Here is a nice "cut out" which students can use for retelling the story after cutting up the items. Or sequencing during the video.  Or can get students labeling the parts. Or do all 3 things as part of a lesson on the book Something For Nothing.
