Product Description

My first and foremost objective as an educator, when reading a class read aloud, or sharing novels for group study is to encourage a love of reading. I aim to make the pages of the stories come alive, and to provoke thoughtful and meaningful discussion. For this reason, you will not find chapter by chapter questions and answers that can at times make reading seem like a chore. I do however include activities that ask students to make connections, think deeper, compare and contrast, imagine… and start discussions.

This is a novel that I plan to use at the beginning of the year to help create an inclusive classroom community. The themes of the novel, such as friendship, individuality, inclusiveness, and mindfulness set the tone for a wonderful school year.

To start off this product, I have included a few words on autism and some discussion questions related to a book called My Brother Charlie, by Holly Robinson Peete and Ryan Elizabeth Peete. This book can be read prior to reading A Boy Called Bat.

The first activities may be used throughout the whole novel, or used where needed:
