A few weeks ago, I received a special treat from Candlewick Press, Jon Klassen’s Hat Box. At the time I was in the middle of planning lessons to teach the “comparison of settings and plots between texts by the same author” to teach in a third grade classroom. The timing was perfect.
I set about planning lessons that included read alouds of each of the books, I Want My Hat Back, This is Not My Hat, and We Found a Hat. After we read the three books, we compared the plots and settings.
After students captured the information on their graphic organizer, they chose two books in order to write a comparison of the settings and plots.
Even though I used the three books together to teach children how to compare plots and settings, each book is a perfect stand alone read aloud for children. And so much fun!
