Hi and welcome back to our Back To School Blog Series! Dog Days of School is a brightly colored book just perfect for grades k-3.  In the book the main character Charlie dislikes school so much that on Sunday nights he can’t sleep. He thinks his dog has it so good that he wishes for them to switch places.  The next morning Charlie wakes up on the floor and sees Norman his dog in his bed. Before Charlie knows it his dog is off to school and he is drinking from the toilet for a week.  Next thing you know Charlie learns that the grass isn't always greener on the other side.

This book is fun and engaging.  It's the perfect way to launch asking and answering questions about key details in a text.  While it does have a school theme, it would be fine for any time of the school year.  The most important thing I model is asking and answering questions in all the books that we're reading.  I start it off simple by introducing who, what, where, when, why and how.  Make sure to check out my video below to see some other ideas. Don't forget to stop back by tomorrow for another post in this series or take a look back at ones that you may have missed.  We have a lot of great ideas for you!
