Today I used the story: I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato by Lauren Child
My library had a copy.
This lesson was using background knowledge to draw a reasonable conclusion about the story.
I added a pre-reading question to help build the background. I asked them what food would they never not ever eat! Oh, what a response I got!! They love talking about themselves!
It was fun listening to them agree or disagree with each other about what was being said.
I then read the story stopping at specific pages that is referenced in the lesson page to ask questions. I wrote these questions on sticky notes and put them on the page to remind me.
When I got to the end of the book the students were given an independent practice worksheet on answering a question to see if they could draw a conclusion about the ending of the book. We then read these aloud and did thumbs up/thumbs down if they felt their answer drew a correct conclusion. We also discussed opinions.
