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.

The guide opens with a link to a video that helps students build interest in the story.

Five guiding questions are provided that can be the basis for whole class discussion or individual student essay response.

An extension idea is provided in the form of a link to a website that allows students to create trading cards for characters from the story.

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.
