Create Something and Smile
Being creative may just get you to the place you would like to be. Going Places, by Peter and Paul Reynolds is a fabulous read aloud and your students will listen attentively. New York Times bestselling illustrator Peter H. Reynolds sketches out the story in his captivating style. Introduce the book by previewing the cover and asking, "What do you think this book is about?" Read the title. "What do you think these kids are doing?" "Where are they?" After discussion about these questions, ask "How will we find out?" You will hear, "Read the book!"

Flying Across America
My students love watching this video. They often ask 'Can we see it again'? Fly across America and see our beautiful land. This might be a nice follow up after reading Going Places.
