Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day

Second graders interact with the story of Alexander's horrible day by connecting it to their lives. They practice predicting, writing paragraphs, reading aloud, discussing his problems, making a card to cheer him up, and designing a pair of shoes for Alexander on Kid Pix. Summative assessment is the Accelerated Reader online quiz, but if you don't have access, a ten-question quiz is available. Link leads to a Lincoln Center interview with author Judith Viorst, geared toward adult readers.
