Author Study – Margaret Wild

This week in Reader’s Workshop, we are investigating picture books written by Margaret Wild.

Margaret Wild has published more than 70 children’s books! Her books vary in themes and are suitable for a wide range of ages. Margaret has won numerous awards for her books.

In our author study, students set up a google sheet on their iPads and recorded their observations about each picture book they read. Their observations included:

  • A summary of the story outline
  • Character descriptions
  • Interesting vocabulary
  • The message or moral
  • A rating out of five
  • Specific reading strategies that could be a focus for the book

We love Margaret Wild books!
