|Someday by Eileen Spinelli|
A wonderful book to read aloud. Best for 1st and 2nd graders. I read it to my first graders and they loved the story. Before reading the story, I introduced key vocabulary words. Remember that teaching reading always includes learning new words and children can grasp the big words, too. Next, I talked about the writer's style ---writing in a see-saw pattern. The children then had a chance to add to the story pattern...writing what they might do someday and what they are doing right now. This book opens the door for a discussion about jobs and occupations. Vocabulary words (flashcards) for $1.00 and a writing response for FREE for this book are at my TPT store. They are ready to print and use. Enjoy!
