Making Text to Text Connections
When I first read my daughter the book My No, No, No Day by Rebecca Patterson I couldn't help but find similarities to the book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. The book is like a preschooler version of Alexander. It follows Bella through a rough day where she is annoyed by her baby brother, frustrated with what her mom makes for meals, acts up in the store, fights with a friend and complains about going to bed. The teacher in me instantly thought about how great these books would be to use for exploring text to text connections. I've created some generic graphic organizers for text to text connections. These will work with these two books or any other books you want to use in your classroom. Click on the image below to get your freebie.
