One day, Mr. Keene called all the students and teachers together and said, "This is a fine, fine school! From now on, let's have school on Saturdays too."And then there was more. School all weekend. School on the holidays. School in the SUMMER! What was next ...SCHOOL AT NIGHT?So it's up to Tillie to show her well-intentioned principal, Mr. Keene, that even though his fine, fine school is a wonderful place, it's not fine, fine to be there all the time. Newbery Medal-winning author Sharon Creech and celebrated New Yorker cartoonist Harry Bliss team up in this charming and hilarious book about what happens when the love of learning goes a bit too far.
Included in this packet are the following:
*10 comprehension task cards based on the story
*Graphic Organizers on summary, author's purpose, sequencing, and story structure.
*4 interactive notebook pages to deepen student understanding.
There is also an interactive notebook page focusing in on multiple vocabulary words from the story.
This is a great story to use as a read aloud for your students, or if you're using a reading series in your school with this story included, this is just a great way to have your students work on some supplemental resources.
