Product Description
About This Book

This is a trifecta begging for at least three readings. The basic story-like text is the first layer. One more reading will allow the reader to grasp the delicate connections in this balance of settings. And a third reading gives the reader the humorous comments and the interaction between the two bookworms on the pages.

No Monkeys, No Chocolate
by Melissa Stewart (Author), Allen Young (Author), Nicole Wong (Illustrator)

Ways to Use This Product
These activities can be used for individual, small group, for whole class. They could also be used as homework, with guided groups, or with book groups. Small groups could be working on different activities at the same time. The book can be read aloud and selected activities done in class. They could be useful laminated and in a literacy center. It is always a better learning experience if books are discussed in pairs or in groups, in my opinion. Pairs or groups of students can also complete more complex activities. Examining text is perfect for two students to work on at one time making it easier for both. Through the teacher read-aloud and student group work, good books become part of a common classroom culture.

Students can travel around the classroom to 3 or 4 stations answering questions about the book. The questions can be glued to butcher paper. Each station should have enough squares for all of the class to record their answer. The questions or activities can be posted on the paper or on the wall. Students must support their answers with proof from the book.
