Get a Jump on Planning!
Congrats on wrapping up the school year! When you’re ready to get into Back to School mode, let these three stories from the September 2019 issue help you plan:
1. Nonfiction: The Wild Life of Christian the Lion
This touching story, about a lion who was raised in captivity and then released in the wilds of Africa, connects to environment and geography as well as social-emotional learning. Skill focus: text features
2. Paired Texts: This Is the Loneliest Place on Earth/This Is the Most Crowded Place on Earth
Your students will learn about the most isolated place to live (an island 1,500 miles from its closest neighbor) and the most crowded place to live (Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, with a population of nearly 19 million). Skill focus: Compare and contrast
3. Play: I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic
This adaptation of Lauren Tarshis’s first book in her beloved I Survived series tells the story of two families who survived the tragic journey. Skill focus: Cause and effect
Enjoy every minute of your summer. And if you haven’t renewed your subscription yet, now’s the time! Don’t worry if you don’t know your exact class size yet—we only need an estimate, and you can adjust it in the fall.
