If you haven't read this book, go get it! Patricia Polacco is amazing. This book is perfect for a unit on accepting differences, bullying, and understanding others. It's also really great for boosting confidence in students with special needs! It focuses on a girl in a special education class who is having difficulty learning to read (it is an autobiography of Patricia's life). I could spend months on this book, there is so much great vocabulary! This worksheet focuses on the figurative language seen throughout this book. My school is big on analyzing quotes for meaning so I used that type of phrasing in my questions, as well as a lot of Tier 2 words (analyze, interpret, determine).
