I used this PDF file I created to pull up on my Smartboard. I created higher level thinking questions for almost every page in the book. After reading a page or two, we would stop and discuss the higher level thinking question in a Think-Pair-Share format. At the very end of the book file, there is a creative writing assignment in which students create an ending to the book. The book ends with the curtains opening, and Marian sang. For this creative writing assignment, I have had students come up with various things that happened when she started singing.
