SWBAT: create a KWL for the book, "Extra Credit" by Andrew Clements, and fill in a Venn diagram for the characters.

Big Idea

Graphic organizers can really help organize your thinking about a text!


25 minutes

In our 25-minute RTI class, we are reading the book Extra Credit by Andrew Clements. Here's why.


For this lesson, an introductory lesson, we worked on the top portion of the KWL (we'll save the Venn diagram for a later lesson, once we understand the characters a bit more).

This is the first in a series of lessons attached to Extra Credit. Using an anchor text is important in Reading Response to Intervention, as it gives the kids a model.
