Pre-Reading is an important aspect of the reading process. This pre-reading activity is a creative writing response that helps students to delve into the world of Okay for Now. Using an excerpt from earlier in the novel, students must develop a descriptive creative writing response. This activity includes a handout that can be used as a quick bellringer or developed into a longer written response. Students will often enjoy sharing their responses and looking back at their writing once they have read part of the novel.
