Peter H. Reynolds’ books are so fun to share at read-aloud time! Reynolds’ stories and artwork are sweet and simple, and his central messages teach us about being better people. In “Ish” we learn that an artist can be hurt by harsh words, but revive and try again; in “Sky Color” we learn to really look at the world around us; in “The Dot” we learn to overcome our fear of art-- just start, and see where our creativity takes us; and finally, in “Plant a Kiss” we learn that in time the seeds of love that we share with others grow and make everyone happy. These four darling books are a great set to share with children, and now you can help your students learn to read closely with the help of Max Learner! Max’s thoughtfully crafted text-dependent questions, and supplemental no-prep reproducible worksheets, will lead students back into these texts time and time again to find the answers. What a fun way to learn the Common Core State Standards for reading!
All of our Max Learner Book Detective products help teach the Common Core reading standards by capturing the attention and imagination of primary students with read-aloud stories teachers love! Kids are excited about “solving the mysteries hidden inside of books”! Our No-Prep text-dependent question (TDQ) cards help teachers guide students to the heart of each story where the central message lives. Then, you can extend your lessons with the reproducible worksheets! Use them for independent or partner work. They're also great resources for guest teachers. Max Learner does all the work, so you don’t have to!
