They will have an opportunity to orally discuss their own examples/connections Day 2: New vocabulary will be discussed. The first reading of the book will take place on this day. Before reading, students will make predictions based on the title and cover. Day 3: Second reading of the story. After this session, students will have the opportunity to discuss and write the Big Idea of the story using supporting evidence from the text.
 In groups of 3 or 4, students will first discuss what is the Big Idea and the supporting evidence and connections. Once they are confident in their response, they will write their answers and then present.
Checking For Understanding:
 During the presentations, we will evaluate collectively how effectively each response meets the success criteria and areas for improvement.
