  • 1. A Book Unit for... Grandfather’s Journey
  • 2. Title: Grandfather s Journey Caldecott Year: 1994 Author: Allen Say Illustrator: Allen Say _________________ CONTENTS • A GUIDED READING page to be used before reading the book. This page is for teacher reference. • A GUIDED READING page to be used after reading the book. This page is for teacher reference and concerns both the plot of the story and the artwork. • A JOURNAL RESPONSES page for recording answers to questions during the reading. This page should go in the students reading notebooks (or other appropriate organizational tool). These questions should be discussed and the answers briefly noted on the lines OR the answers can be written by students while the book is being read, and then the answers can be discussed when the book is finished. • A JOURNAL RESPONSES page for recording students own questions. This page should go in the students reading notebooks. There should be questions that students have during the reading, and questions after the reading as well. The during reading questions will help students develop skills of inference and prediction. Students should be given the opportunity to write their questions during appropriate pauses in the reading. The after reading questions may be questions to clarify points the students did not understand, with factual answers, or they may be questions with which students travel beyond what they ve read. In both cases, it is good to spend some class time discussing these questions and their answers. • Two JOURNAL RESPONSES pages of art prompts.

Have you ever moved house from one place to another? What are the good and bad parts of moving? Have you ever felt homesick? What does it feel like? Judge a book by its cover These questions should be discussed in class while looking at the cover. What is the title of the book? Who is the author? Are the author and the illustrator the same person? Is this book about today, or yesterday, or a long time ago? Why do you think so? What do you think this book will be about? What clues in the title or the cover picture make you think that? What kind of pictures will be in this book? Are they colorful or black- and-white? Do you know how these pictures were made?

Why do you think the grandfather left his home? Why did he go back? Describe some things the grandfather might have seen while he was riding on the steamship. Which war is the author talking about? What might have happened to the grandfather s house during that war? Why do you think the grandfather didn t keep songbirds after the war? How is the author like his grandfather? How are they different? Do you think this story could be true? Do you think the title of this story was a good choice? About the art: These questions should be discussed in class while looking at the book, after the book is read. This story takes place over many, many years. How can you tell that just by looking at the pictures? Many of the illustrations look like photographs. How does that enhance the story? Did this art go with the story? Which picture was your favorite? Why was it your favorite?
