This oldie-but-goodie novel is perfect for a chuckle-filled read-aloud. 41 very short chapters have been divided into eleven segments that have a one-page, short answer set of questions that involve basic understanding of the text, as well as higher level questioning strategies. The short essays easily relate to younger lives and foster composition comfortably.
Effective, enjoyable, and easy to use, these plays improve listening skills. No memorization is required. They contain very short, group parts for an entire class. After roles are assigned, the teacher reads the story, and the student groups provide the appropriate words when they hear their cues. Enjoy the smiles!
