I teach first grade in an inclusion class and my partner and I did this lesson. This was our first step into the common core and we were absolutely delighted! Our children (which are a mix of struggling readers and high readers) were able to demonstrate higher level thinking skills and make some connections about the various themes that run throughout the story. As teachers we were excited by this lesson and that excitement was transferred to our students. Thank you!
