As the students read, they use small coloured post-it notes to flag parts of the story. For example, a yellow post-it means that the students can't read the word, while a blue post-it means that the part that the student just read, confuses them. If the student makes a connection, they use a pink post-it note.
Being able to talk to another student about the story is a bonus!
Words like tranquil, decipher and mongrel allow the students to use a variety of reading and comprehension strategies to figure out how the word is said and what it means.
Now the question is: Is Bunnicula really a bunny dracula that sucks the juice out of vegetables?
