To Entertain

This To Entertain lesson plan also includes:

We all love to be entertained by the books we read, but how do we as readers know if that is the author's true intent? The first lesson in this series begins with a class reading of the children's book The Adventures of Taxi Dog by Debra and Sal Barracca, during which the teacher models how to identify characteristics of the book that indicate the author is trying to entertain the reader. A series of guided and independent practice activities follow that support children with learning to identify this genre of writing. Implement this lesson series at the beginning of the year and lay a solid foundation for building the reading comprehension skills of young learners.
