Do any of your budding readers have parents who work the night shift? Eileen Spinelli's book Night Shift Daddy, which can be found on YouTube if you don't have it, examines this family dynamic in a positive light and is an excellent resource for vocabulary in context. Although there are plenty more options, suggested words here are: chime, cozy, nod, pale, and shadows. Brief kids on these terms before reading aloud, and help them utilize context clues by listening for them in the text. Engaging comprehension questions prompt scholars to make connections to familiar concepts, and there are linked graphic organizers visual learners may benefit from.
