I'd love to see this in a black and white version, if possible, since I don't have mass color printing capabilities at my school. I still am excited to try a new way to present the book to my class! I love your use of a variety of reading strategies. Thanks for your hard work!
This is my first time teaching 3rd grade and this looks so fun and great for my class. Thanks this year I am really trying to teach Soical Studies through Novel studies and this will be a great addition to this unit!
We put the foldable together first before reading, (which got the kids really excited about diving in!) then filled it in DURING the novel. When we finished Chapters 1 & 2, for instance, they wrote the summaries for those chapters. As they thought of questions, they wrote those under "generating questions, we added vocabulary as we went along etc. Hope that helps! Let me know how it goes. LOVE this story! :-) firstname.lastname@example.org
