Two-Minute Video on the Importance of Connecting Students to the Outside World
by Tatiana Florival
The great outdoors is home to a wide variety of animals, and while the Animorphs don’t live out there among them, Adam King—a third grade teacher at Daniel Webster Magnet School in New Rochelle, New York—loves using his students’ excitement for the series to learn about the behavior of animals with unique abilities.
Adam finds The Invasion (the first installment in the Animorphs series) to be the perfect book for his students to discuss in breakout book clubs of three to four kids.
In this exclusive teacher-review video, Adam shares how he uses The Invasion to help students:
• Find joy in reading with an action-packed story
• Practice making predictions when they encounter cliff-hangers in the story
Check out Adam’s review to see how The Invasion could fit perfectly into your curriculum as a middle-of-the-year read-aloud!
