Fun Video on “Building” a Bedtime Story
by Traci Swain
Inside The Napping House, all kinds of dozing creatures are snoring on top of one another in one big sleepy pile—kind of like a stack of building blocks! After reading the Book of the Week, Allister, Elliott, and Max re-create Audrey and Don Wood’s sleepy-time read-aloud with building blocks of their own in this fun class-friendly video.
Play this video for your class to find out why the Book Boys love The Napping House and get your students ready to ease into bedtime with a great book. Your class can join the Book Boys in reading The Napping House and learn about:
Retelling: Review the main events of the story together as a class.
Sequencing: Recount the order in which the characters in the story wake up.
Cause and Effect: Talk about what action each character in the house makes to awaken the next character.
Did your students think of any other unique ways to retell the events in The Napping House? We’d love to hear from you! If you’re able, please share with us and other Scholastic Book Clubs teachers on Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #ScholasticBookClubs!
The Book Boys work in different departments at Scholastic Book Clubs. They formed a group to share a wide range of books and introduce students to the world of reading. Each week, the Book Boys select a book to feature. They make stories come alive by creating fun, educational, and engaging videos for teachers and families to use in the classroom or at home. The Book Boys, like everyone at Scholastic Book Clubs, want all kids to love to read and be proud to declare: “I am a reader!”
