Flying Solo by Ralph Fletcher
Like other sixth grade classes, Mr. Fabiano’s class is made up of individuals, each with their own problems and concerns. Unlike other sixth grade classes, when Mr. Fabiano’s substitute teacher doesn’t show up for school, they decide to run the class by themselves for the day. Predictable? Far from it! The lessons learned this day will be dramatic and unforeseen as the cry of freedom is mixed with responsibility and compassion.
The 18-page Kids' Wings unit for Flying Solo will lead your students through a problem-solving experience that builds high-level thinking, leadership, and responsibility! We highly recommend it as a companion book to Because of Mr. Terupt.
The Kids Wings activities written by Suzy Red include:
Journaling for Vocabulary and Comprehension Independence
Developing Your Writing Skills
Readers Theater Script
Point of View
Multiple Choice comprehension Check-ups
Fact or Opinion?
Leadership through Fire
Writing and Discussion Prompts
