The Relatives Came
is a classic from Cynthia Rylant. This unit includes before/during/after activities for the book. Skills addressed with this unit include prereading, vocabulary, character traits, cause and effect, sequencing, summarizing, questioning,, making connections/comparisons, and creative writing in response to reading. These activities would work well as part of an author study of Cynthia Rylant, as a class read aloud to model strategies for younger readers, and with partner reading.
