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 inferencing, predicting, and theme.

The guide opens with a link to an interactive that will help students build background knowledge about ants.

Five guiding questions are provided that can be the basis for whole class discussion or individual student essay response. One of the questions requires 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 link to images that help students to visual the world from an ant's perspective.

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.
