"I'm not sure I understand this lesson entirely.  Have you presented this to your classroom and do you have a sample of an advertisement that you could share?  Thank you so very much."

"Starting with a picture book to teach theme is a method I use with my students. The connection that Jennifer made between these 2 books is something I never thought of. Sandra makes a valid point about the negative. I thought a possible extension…"

Sandra Bivens replied to Jennifer Reynolds's discussion The Rainbow Fish and The Giver- Selling the unsellable (Jennifer Reynolds) in the group Persuasive Writing Ideas
"You've already put quite a bit of thought into this. Using the picture book to illustrate the larger theme on a more simplistic level is great. You could extend this further by having the kids make their own children's book. They would…"

Joe Ernst replied to Jennifer Reynolds's discussion The Rainbow Fish and The Giver- Selling the unsellable (Jennifer Reynolds) in the group Teaching Persuasive Writing
"Wow, shat a great lesson. I really like how you connect a picture book and novel. Neat idea of having them write about a habit that no one else would want! I don't have any ideas for extending or clarifying. However, after you finish it would…"

Each two page spread is a detailed setting where Waldo has become a visitor. These…See More
