“Wolf!” by Becky Bloom is a great read aloud to share with students at the beginning of the school year to spark their interest and establish a growth mindset about learning to read. The funny story and beautiful illustrations compliment the book's more serious central message about the determination needed to learn to read well.
1st Grade Teachers: Use our Common Core-aligned Text-Dependent Questions (RL 1, 2, 3, and 7) to model close reading. Then “MAXimize” your read-aloud time with the included Close Reading worksheet. Conclude with our Narrative Response to Literature writing activity where students can reflect upon the story and write about their favorite kinds of books to read. Great to display for Back to School night!
Optional: The TDQs alone—no worksheets or activities--may be purchased as part of a set of five TDQs in our “Back to School Set #1” sold in our store on TpT.
