THE INVISIBLE BOY by Trudy Ludwig

Brian feels invisible because the other boys and girls do not include him. He doesn’t get invited to birthday parties that everyone else is invited to, and they don’t include him during games at recess. They even ignore Brian at lunch time.

One day a new student, Justin, becomes a part of Brian’s class. Some of the students make fun of Justin’s lunch, but Brian does not. He draws Justin a picture to make him feel better and writes that he thinks Justin’s lunch sounded delicious. Justin thanks Brian for the drawing and compliments his artwork. When it is time to pick partners for a group activity, Brian wants to work with Justin, but so does another boy. Justin includes Brian, and says they can all work together. Brian also sits with them at lunch, and because of Justin’s kindness, he does not feel invisible anymore.

◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️ REASONS YOU WILL BE HAPPY TO HAVE THIS RESOURCE ◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️

TEACHERS LIKE YOU LOVE IT BECAUSE

❤ It includes lots of questions that can be used for discussions, literature circles, or as reader response prompts. The questions are categorized by reading strategy / skill which makes it easy for planning lessons.

❤ Teachers know the value of read aloud, but often feel they need to justify the time spent reading to their students (especially in the older grades). This resource makes it easy to add extra value and extensions.

❤ There is a lot to choose from. You probably won't get to all the activities, but how awesome is it to have them all at your fingertips.

❤ They make great sub plans!

❤ They are great for reader's workshop, small groups, independent work, literacy centers, writer's workshop, RTI, and more.

◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️ 3 PROBLEMS THIS RESOURCE WILL SOLVE FOR YOU ◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️◼️

➊ Differentiation / Modification: The activities were intentionally designed in a manner that enables you to have all your students working on the same activity, but modified if needed.

➋ A Lack of Time: You're busy and stretched thin! We've done most of the work for you. There is plenty of room for your personal touch, but we have put the work in our end with the goal of making your job easier.

➌ Being Able to Informally Assess Your Students: When it comes to reading, we HATE standardized testing and test prep that sucks the joy out of books. These activities will help you to understand how your students think as readers, show you where they need additional practice, and provide you with the tools to support them.
