This emergent reader goes along with the essential question in BA: Why do we make choices? This animal fiction book will make your students giggle when they read this book on their own. I am starting to use it as a close read activity. We highlight inflectional endings, look for possessive nouns, discuss the value of problem solving and cause & effect. The skills are endless. I have used the book throughout the 3 week unit only because my students need extra practice reading the book and there are so many skills to review.
