Here are a couple of things we have been working on:
The students wrote about a time when they felt left out (like Bear in the story).
Mom made these charts to use with all the Bear stories by Karma Wilson. We plan to make another one for all the Little Quack stories. We just wrote about each book in the spaces after we read the book, but we will complete the Thanksgiving and Christmas stories later.

Mom's sorting activity using balls. This activity is from kindergartenkindergarten.com and can be found here.
Each student designed a ball.
