Product Description

Boris and Bella is a BOOtiful story which can teach young readers how to watch the character for theme changes. It's an awesome read aloud for our Halloween activities.

Bella Legrossi (the messiest monster in Booville) and Boris Kleanitoff (the tidiest monster in Booville) were neighbors who rubbed each other the wrong way. Kids will have fun listening to this Halloween story to find out if these two could ever be friends.

By using the signpost strategy (Notice and Note Strategies for Close Reading by K. Beers and N. Probst), students can gain a better understanding of key elements in fictional text.

When looking at the characters and major events, you can lead the class to see how these changes can affect the character over time. (This is the beginning of awareness for: character motivation, plot, conflict, foreshadowing ‘predictions’, and big life lessons or themes.) Questions that will lead your students to their very own ‘Ah- Ha’ moments are included.
