What was in Jeremy’s Egg?

I enjoy using the story “What Was In Jeremy’s Egg” upon returning to school after the Easter weekend. There’s so much to be learned from it! I typically share the story as a read aloud and have kids discuss and respond to the prompts. After each response, I have students share their ideas and then give them a chance to add to own ideas. This type of reading, writing, learning and sharing brings out rich and thoughtful responses. Feel free to use and or adapt any of the prompts with your class! We’d love to hear other students’ reactions to the story! Reach us on Twitter @cherandpete Also check out our M.A.D Podcast (coming soon).

Use information from the text and your own ideas to write your responses to the prompts. Remember to “dig deep” when responding.

Had Jeremy learned anything? Why hadn’t Jeremy put anything in his egg?
