    3rd Read

    Ask these questions before reading the book. 

    The title of this story is Khalil and Mr. Hagerty.  As we read, I want you to listen to descriptions of both of these characters and also listen for a word that describes their relationship in the end. 

    We now know that Khalil and Mr. Hagerty are friends.  Today as we read, I want you to listen to things they do together as friends.  We will list them after we read.

    Today, I want you to think about the word treasure.  What does Khalil find and think of as treasure and what does Mr. Hagerty find and think of as treasure?

    After the book is read, follow up with the following questions.

    How would you describe Khalil? How would you describe Mr Hagerty?  What word is used to describe their relationship in the end?

    What activities do they do together?  Let’s make a list.  We can add any we missed when we read it again tomorrow.

    Do we need to add any activities to our list from yesterday?  What did they both think of as treasure?  What do you treasure?

    Writing Prompts to tie to understanding of the story content.
