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 author's purpose and main idea.

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. Two of the questions require students to give evidence and examples from the story as is required in many Common Core test questions. An extension idea is provided in the form of a digital connection to a website that allows students to learn more about the layers of the rainforest. 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.
