Literature – Seahorses & Dragons

During Session 3, the Seahorses and the Dragons will be reading Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper.

Because this is a slightly longer book, it would be great if everyone could have Chapters 1, 2, 3 & 4 read by the first day of Session 3 (Jan. 31).

Then answer these questions and bring them to class:

Chapter 1:

– How does Melody feel about words?

– How does she describe them?


Chapter 2: 

– What kind of music do Melody, her mom and her dad like?

– What are some things that Melody can do?  

– What are some things that she can’t do?


Chapter 3:  

– What happens when Melody has a “tornado explosion”?

– Describe Melody’s relationship with her dad.


Chapter 4:

– How do you feel about the doctor that Melody saw when she was five?

– Describe Melody’s mom.
