This unit includes activities for before, during, and after the reading of "Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch." The main purpose of these activities is to help our students to grasp how Mr. Hatch changes and the actions that prompt such change. Metacognition or thinking about your thinking, is another component that is hit within this unit. This is a skill that is hard to visualize; therefore, speech bubbles are used to help students “see” the thinking that they are doing. Each page has “thinking” in the title to help the students realize that this book prompts them to think about the character, connections they may have, and how they may create change through their actions.
The following sheets are included:
Thinking About Giving (before reading)
Thinking About Reading
Thinking About Mr. Hatch
Thinking About Change
Thinking About Traits
Thinking About Illustrations
Thinking About Giving (after reading)
Hope your students enjoy this great book!
