This interactive read aloud will be a fantastic addition to your Reader’s Workshop. The book “A Different Pond” is a beautifully illustrated story about a Vietnamese family. This book is perfect for your Alberta Grade 5 Social Studies Class because it shares an immigration story! This book is also perfect for the beginning of the year or any time you want to focus on the idea of each student being unique and having their own story. Finally, this story is filled with figurative language! This is the perfect mentor text to use when introducing similes or when studying poetry.

The illustrations in this book are truly stunning! In fact, it was a 2018 Caldecott honor book for this very reason. Your upper elementary students will immediately be drawn to this text because the illustrations resemble that of a graphic novel.
