Tuesday by David Wiesner

Recommended Grades: 3-5

A nearly wordless picture book depicting how frogs behave one Tuesday night. 

Lesson Idea:

Comprehension Strategies

Making Inferences: Read aloud the first half of Tuesday.  As you read aloud, model how to make inferences by inferring what the frogs are doing on this Tuesday night. Explain what an inference is and how they help us understand what we read.   Create a t-chart that has two columns (What the picture shows/Inference).  As you read aloud, model how to fill out the t-chart.  After reading aloud the first half, provide an opportunity for students to work with partners to complete the second half with a t-chart.

    This book can be read along with the musical piece “Ride of the Valkyries” by Wagner. It’s amazing how perfectly they fit together, but I do recommend practicing before sharing it with a class. 🙂

    Tried to find the book you quoted by Dawn Little, but no luck. Is it still to be published? Thanks Jo
