Product Description
This picture book guide was designed to help teachers prepare their students for Common Core extended response questions. It was also designed to help teachers make digital connections to literature. This guide focuses on predicting.

The guide opens with a digital connection to an interactive website that helps students build background knowledge. Five guiding questions are provided that can be the basis for whole class discussion or individual student essay response. Several of the questions require students to give evidence and examples from the story and to justify their answers as is required in many Common Core test questions. An extension idea is provided in the form of a website that allows students to use their knowledge of temperature. The guide closes with the five guiding questions on three printable pages with plenty of room for written responses. An answer key is also provided.

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.3.1 Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.4.1 Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.
