When kids love a story (especially one with a moral, diverse characters and plenty of great language) I like to make it a focus of study. In that spirit, I created a free book study resource of Zaid and the Gigantic Cloud. The book study is meant to reinforce effective reading strategies such as:
– Mental Images
– Making Connections
– Identifying Story Elements
The package includes 8 worksheets, with each one reinforcing a different reading strategy. This is a perfect way to get kids to make more meaning out of their texts and engage with stories.
