Edward Tulane

As part of the Global Read Aloud Project we have continued to practice our reading comprehension strategies while reading our shared book The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.  Students have loved traveling with Edward from the bottom of the ocean, to a fisherman's house, into the trash and even on the road with a man and his dog.  We took all our character trait knowledge to write letters from Edward to different characters from the story.  Students did an excellent job putting themselves in Edward's shoes and writing about how he was feeling and thinking.

We have continued to connect with our friends in Texas to share our thinking with one another. We make predictions, ask questions and even make some very strong inferences. Our comprehension skills are improving daily.  We're looking forward to our next Friday skype date!

Common Core Standard R.L 1.9: Compare and contrast the adventures and experiences of characters in stories.   R.L 1.6: Identify who is telling the story at various points in a text.
