This is a close reading lesson for the book, Thank You, Sarah. I read the story first as a read aloud and then we re-read the story with it under the document camera on the smart board. We took notes on the story together. The book was also in a literacy center so that the students could partner read this and get even more familiar with this great story. I truly got the chance to discover new knowledge in reading this great book! I had never heard that we nearly "lost" Thanksgiving! Great way to help students understand the “power of the pen” and how they can make a difference!
