Good morning! I hope you are staying warm today! Here in Virginia it has been so snowy, and now it is frigid! I am trying to stay warm here in my house.
Today for Book Talk Thursday I am featuring a book that is great for making predictions and for working with Black History Month: Back of the Bus by Aaron Reynolds.
In the book, a young boy and his mother are riding on the back of the bus as people move back on the bus. He plays with his marble throughout the story, even sending it up to Rosa Parks who is in the front of the bus. Hearing the story through his eyes will make children think about the events of that day.
Since the students know so much of the story, predictions will be easy for them. Before reading the book, I would give the students the following list of words from the book to use to write a "summary" or prediction. After reading the story, we will compare our predictions to the actual story.
So, today, I invite you to link up again. It can be any book at all, but I challenge you to come up with a story impression for your book. I can't wait to see what you share!
