Max Goes to the Doctor, by Adria F. Klein
"Max and Zoe" books are great examples of what a series book looks like.
Try at home:
- In writing, we are writing series books. We are using the same characters to go on different adventures in multiple books. At home, help your child orally rehearse some problems a character may encounter in a story so he/she can be ready to write about it in class. Reading series books can help your child get ready to write stories just like their favorite author. Some popular series in first grade are the Elephant & Piggie books by Mo Willems and Max and Zoe by Shelley Swanson Sateren, which can be found on myon.com.
- Is your child curious about something? Help your child think of a question and collect data. For example, do more people in our family like the park or the movies? Think about how you will record the data, survey people in your family and analyze the data! Now you know where your next family outing will be!
