I would love to implement more literature in my classroom by using the book The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. By doing book studies, students are able to learn many reading, language, and writing standards. "This charming book is about a china rabbit named Edward Tulane. The rabbit was very pleased with himself, and for good reason: he was owned by a girl named Abilene, who treated him with the utmost care and adored him completely. And then, one day, he was lost. Kate DiCamillo takes us on an extraordinary journey, from the depths of the ocean to the net of a fisherman, from the top of a garbage heap to the fireside of a hoboes' camp, from the bedside of an ailing child to the bustling streets of Memphis. And along the way, we are shown a true miracle -- that even a heart of the most breakable kind can learn to love, to lose, and to love again." Benefits of Book Studies: •Vocabulary work •Critical thinking •Figurative language •Offer observations, make connections, react, speculate, interpret, and raise questions in response to text •Identify and discuss book themes, characters, plots, and settings •Connect their experiences with those of the author and/or with characters from the books •Support predictions, interpretations, conclusions, etc. with examples from text Practice key reading skills and strategies (cause-and-effect, problem/solution, compare-and-contrast, summarizing, etc.) •Monitor their own comprehension •Extension activities
