Alexander receives money from his grandparents and really wants to keep it, but does he?
Comprehension Strategies: Making Inferences: Read aloud Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday and model how to infer what characters are feeling based on the pictures and text. Create a t-chart that says Text Clues and Inference and use it as a guide to scaffold for students (or What the Picture Shows/Inference). Once you’ve modeled, provide students the opportunity to make inferences with a partner (use a different book) using the t-chart. Eventually, have students make inferences as they read without the t-chart.
