Product Description
This is a week's lesson using the book, Fireboat, by Maira Kalman.

Strategies are: predictions, tone and compare/contrast.

You will start the week using predetermined vocabulary cards to predict whether they belong in the year 1931,1995 or 2001. For the next three days you will read a portion of the story and review the vocabulary read. By the end of the week, the students will be using the vocabulary words to complete a three circle Venn-Diagram.

This book would be a good choice the week of Sept. 11. It describes how a small boat turned into an emergency vehicle during that fate-filled week.
