Product Description
Make Way for Ducklings, by Robert McCloskey, is a sweet, beloved read-aloud enjoyed by millions of children since 1941 when it won the Caldecott Award! In this story, Mrs. Mallard is trying to take her ducklings to the Boston Public Gardens when she gets some much-needed help from Officer Michael who stops traffic so they can safely cross the street. This is a great read-aloud for discussing and promoting acts of kindness.

Our Text-Dependent Questions are derived from the Common Core State Standards for Reading Literature 1, 2, 3, and 7, and will help you model close reading as you guide your students back into the text to answer the questions and ultimately discover the central message of the story. Make your read aloud time even more productive with our Close Reading Worksheet which guides students to the exact page numbers within the text where answers can be found. Guidelines help young writers with penmanship. An answer key is provided for teacher reference but can also be used for handwriting practice or for modified work. Finally, conclude your lesson with the included Draw and Write Activity which provides students with an opportunity to reflect on the story and apply it to their own lives by thinking about an act of kindness they can perform for another.
