This coming week, my class will be spending a day or 2 reading and writing using Ira Sleeps Over as our featured text.

My students love this story, it is so relatable for them, but that is not usually my objective while sharing the story with them.  In order to get the kiddos to think critically, I ask a lot about the character’s choices and qualities.

Here are some of the responses and activities we do to make the days super fun!
