“David Goes to School,” by David Shannon, is a popular read-aloud for back-to-school since its simple text and charming pictures are so effective in launching a discussion about school rules and consequences. Use our Text-Dependent Questions--aligned to the Common Core State Standards for Reading Literature 1, 2, 3, and 7--to model close reading. Enhance your read-aloud time with the included close reading worksheet that helps students reflect on the rules and the central message of this story (we all make mistakes, but we’re still loved).
Please note: The TDQs alone—no worksheet--may be purchased as part of a set of five TDQ cards in our “Back to School Set #1” sold in our store on TpT.
Included in this packet:
• 1 Text-Dependent Question card; answers included for teacher reference
• 1 Close-reading worksheet and answer key
• Answer key may be used instead for handwriting practice or for modified work
