This is always a class favorite! We focused on setting and characters, especially the main character. Here's our reading response to Fix-It Duck.
I also introduce the Daily Fix-It component of Reading Street after reading this story. I explain to the children that we are going to be like Fix-It Duck and try to fix the sentence. We start off simple but soon we look for nouns, verbs, and adjectives. We figure out how to turn a telling sentence into an asking sentence, too. It's so amazing to see their progress as the year progresses.
