Big Idea:In this first day of our close read lesson on the book "Casey at the Bat," we will read through the text taking the time to zoom in on the key ideas and details. We will also create a character analysis of Casey using evidence from the text.
Big Idea:The students will use a graphic organizer to construct a character sketch in order to introduce the main character, Bud. They will provide textual evidence to support their description of Bud.
Big Idea:Students will illustrate a theme from Bud, Not Buddy through generation of a creative book report (i.e., flyer, newspaper, game, interview with the author, etc.). Through examination of these themes, students will make real world connections.
