Product Description
Everyone can relate to the little boy's problem in this story written by Gillian Shields. Everyone can remember a time when their Mom said "No!" to getting a new pet. But not many people have been as creative and imaginative in their problem solving as this clever little boy.
To start with, the boy must find solutions to the problems his mother sees with having a pet dog. This evolves into a series of more interesting problem solving events when he decides to take his mother's advice and learn to "love what he has" instead of looking for something new. Training a goldfish to act like a dog is not your ordinary solution to a problem like his! Enjoy this lesson with your students, reading through the text and using an anchor chart to note the problems and solutions in Shield's entertaining story.
At the end of the story a wonderful theme emerges. What can we learn from a mother, her son, and an ordinary but extraordinary goldfish? Truly worth a classroom discussion!
