Dragons Love Tacos

Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin is a hilarious story that you and your students are sure to love! Plus, this story can be read at any time throughout the school year!  
 
Deanna and I added this story to our digital Engaging Readers unit for February. Along with the week-worth of lesson plans, there are five reading response tasks for students to complete either online or in a printable format.

Throughout the week of reading activities, students will practice five reading comprehension skills. 

Making Predictions

After a few pages, students learn that dragons don’t like to eat anything spicy. Then, the story reveals that there are jalapenos in the salsa. Students make a prediction on what they think is going to happen next in the story.

Here is where you discuss the events of the story with your students and talk about the effects of those events.

Making Connections

Students write about a connection they made with the boy in the story. They love this activity because they get to tell you all about their room and what they like.

Author’s Purpose

This can sometimes be a difficult reading comprehension skill for students. This is where whole-group discussions can help students develop and build their understanding.

Opinion

This is also a favorite for students! They have the opportunity to tell you about their favorite part of the story. The goal is for them to also tell you why that part is their favorite. If your kindergarten students aren’t quite ready for that, it is quite alright! However, first graders should be able to explain why.
