Million Dollar Throw: Achievement Unit



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.

I will be offering several themed prompts based off the books theme to choose from in regards to their paragraph writing.
