It fascinates me how some books work with some kids and not others. Last year, my students loved the story of the rocket boys, but so far it’s not working this year. So…let’s move forward to the book, Million Dollar Throw by Mike Lupica.
My students have a good bit of review ahead of them tomorrow concerning pronouns. I will also be teaching strong paragraph construction. Therefore, I will only be introducing the book tomorrow.
I will be offering several themed prompts based off the books theme to choose from in regards to their paragraph writing.
The following clips will be used to introduce the book.
