Product Description
In Peter and Paul Reynolds’ story, “Going Places,” we discover what imagination can do and the power and magic of collaboration. Rafael, who is highly motivated to win the go-cart building competition, teams up with the imaginative Maya, and the two together go “above and beyond” to win the contest! This beautifully illustrated book is great on so many levels, and our Text-Dependent Questions lead students right to the heart of the story, helping you teach the Common Core State Standards for Reading Literature 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, and 9 along with the central message about the power of dedication and teamwork. Extend your lesson with the accompanying close reading worksheet, draw-and-write activity, and 3-part step-by-step compare/contrast writing activity. Examples for each step are included for teacher reference. Get the “Max” out of your read aloud time with Max Learner Book Detective!
