The Year of Billy Miller GRA


The Global Read Aloud We are so excited to begin The Global Read Aloud. We are reading “The Year of Billy Miller” by Kevin Henkes!


After reading Chapter One and gathering more information about who Billy is we made predictions about the story. Our predictions had to be based on something that has already happened in the book to support our ideas.


After finishing Part 1 “Teacher” we worked in groups to answer this question. “How did Billy’s relationship with Ms. Silver change from the beginning to the end of part 1. Use your own ideas and proof from the text to support your answer.”


We practised “Good Answers” by following the RAP outline. When everyone was finished we used green and blue dot stickers to mark where groups had their own ideas and proof from the text in their answers. Then we choose the answer we thought was the best!
