Encourage students to engage with their texts through the "Questioning the Author" (QtA) strategy with e.e. cummings' "The Elephant & the Butterfly". This page offers several direct quotes from the poem with prompting QtA questions to consider for each. The story, written for children, is short & can be found online.
This activity could function for:
* Literacy stations or centers
* Collaborative contemplation (partner or small group work)
* Whole class discussion, mini-lesson, or activity
If you have any questions or concerns, please use the “Ask Question” option & I will get back to you ASAMBCA (As Soon As My Busy Classroom Allows)!
