Classroom Guide for Baseball Saved Us by Ken Mochizuki

Lesson Overview:

Have students examine the cover of the book, the title, and the first few pages of BASEBALL SAVED US. Then ask them to brainstorm what they think the book will be about. Have students create a chart listing what they think will happen in the story and what questions they hope will be answered by the story's end. After students have finished reading the story, or have had the story read aloud to them, suggest that they complete their charts. You may wish to have them use the charts as a basis for a written response to the book.

The classroom guide is available to download as a PDF from the linked page.
