Rules of Summer by Shaun Tan

Recommended Grades: 5-8

What if the rules of summer feel completely arbitrary? What if your older brother is the only one who gets to make them up all summer long?

Lesson Idea:

Mentor Text: Making Inferences: Read aloud Rules of Summer and ask students what they notice. Read aloud the text again and ask if students notice anything different. Read aloud several times to guide students to make inferences about the meaning behind the story. What are the rules of summer really all about?
