This was the novel we used with the year 3/4 test class for the SSR with intervention reading program.
Using Sheena Cameron’s comprehension ideas, we read and discussed the text and illustrations for a deeper meaning and understanding. There was not a lot of writing and question answering, more an unpacking of the story.
So many children enjoyed this book they went on to read the others in the series.
Another great book in this genre would be Captain Jimmy Cook Discovers Third Grade by Jol and Kate Temple.
