THE BOY WHO LOVED WORDS
By Roni Schotter
Let's Meet the Author
I AM GOING TO READ ALOUD FROM ANOTHER OF MY FAVORITE PICTURE BOOKS. THIS ONE IS CALLED THE BOY WHO LOVED WORDS AND IT IS WRITTEN BY RONI SCHOTTER. WHEN I AM DONE, I WANT YOU TO TELL ME WHAT THE MAIN CHARACTER'S GOAL WAS AS A READER.
What are other reading goals we might have that are based on our strengths or interests?
Turn and tell a partner what reading goal fits your interests and strengths as a reader.
Today, before you read, I want you to write down your reading goal in your reading notebook, and then again on an index card. The card is for me so that I can remember your goal when I come to talk to you in a reading conference.
