Love the fact that this button goes with my blog theme! ;)
I'm going to talk about my favorite book of all time.
First, before you read the book aloud, ask your students what they have learned about learned about wolves from other stories. That's activating their schema right there!
Then give the students a little background of the book. Here's the description from my library.
Well, low and behold, the wolf starts being nice to everyone and no one wants to be his friend because of his reputation.
Just as you are convinced that the wolf has changed his ways, you're in for a shocking ending! Guess you'll have to read the book to find out what happens!
I made a graph that you could use either before you read the book or in the middle or reading to your students. There's a part where all of the animals come to the wolf's door because they smell the pancakes. It's the perfect place to take a break and practice some predicting skills.
