Caps for Sale is the perfect text to use as an interactive read-aloud! Use some or all of the discussion prompts provided to create a rich reading experience for your students. The Reader's Theater script can be used with the whole class and includes the role of narrator, peddler and monkeys. Alternatively, it works very well in small groups (which allows for more students to have speaking parts).
Students will use textual evidence to answer questions on a multiple choice/short answer comprehension quiz. Additionally, students will apply concepts of cause and effect to write a letter to the peddler. Students can also test out their engineering skills by designing a better cap carrier for the peddler.
