Anyway, as I was reading the book, I thought about how our words and actions can impact others in both positive and negative ways. A smile or a kind word can go a long way to brighten someone's day. I wanted to create a reading lesson to go along with the story, and I thought it would be the perfect text for exploring cause and effect - both in the book and in our own lives.
So I created the Heartfelt Causes and Effects graphic organizer from the Cause and Effects Rocket graphic organizer in my newest ebook, Graphic Organizers for Reading: Teaching Tools Aligned with the Common Core. In addition, I wrote out a complete lesson for using Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch with your students. You can click the cover on the right to learn more about the book or purchase it on Amazon.com. You can download the entire 9-page packet from the Seasonal page on Teaching Resources during February or any time of the year from my TeachersPayTeachers store. If you download it from TpT, be sure to leave a comment and a rating, and follow me there for more freebies! Thanks!
