Someday by Eileen Spinelli

Someday
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!
