I would rather be reading

Bridge to Terabithia

Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson

This sweet book is about a friendship between an elementary aged boy and girl. Their imagination runs wild throughout the book and they create a "kingdom." The Lexile level is 810L. I would use this in a 5th grade classroom when we were talking about foreshadowing. The class would be divided into two groups and I would put a giant tic tac toe chart on the board. I would read passages from the book and the teams must identify whether the passage is foreshadowing or a flashback. If they are correct, they can place an “o” or an “x” on the board. The game continues until one of them wins tic-tac-toe.
