PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

**NEWLY REVISED & UPDATED**

This 10 page book study includes: a "Vocabulary Focus" page with five Tier 2 vocabulary words from the story; a "Word Work" page; a "Genre Focus & Discussion Questions" page to spiral in students' knowledge of biographies and author's purpose; "Text-Based Response Questions" to elicit higher-level thinking; and a "Writing Prompt" activity for students to build text-to-self connections.

This book study would be ideal for a 1-to-2 day lesson on the story. The writing prompt asks students to reflect on what it is like to "belong to two places," as both author Allen Say and his grandfather do throughout the story. Students are able to reflect on their identities and belonging to various communities, groups, or even nationalities.
