Book of the Week: Hurricane Watch

Educators often ask me which of my books would work best in their classroom. So this year, I’ve decided to feature a book each week and highlight related teaching materials and strategies.

Since we’re smack dab in the middle of hurricane season, I’ve decided to feature my newest book, Hurricane Watch, this week. It includes two fun activities at the end and can be used to support a range of NGSS Earth Science PEs for grades 2-4.

Hurricane Watch has a blended writing style—part narrative, part expository—and an en media res opening. By examining and discussing these features, students can gain insight into my writing process and learn techniques that they can experiment with in their own nonfiction writing.
