Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day - Ray Cruz, Judith Viorst

Alexander is having the worst day of his life! This text is a classic story that is extremely relatable for young readers. Alexander experiences all sorts of terrible, horrible, no good, very bad things! Just like Alexander, students might have experienced a terrible day. I would love to have students use this text for a sequencing activity, or to inspire them to write about their own bad days. Teachers could definitely use this text to study cause and effect. I found a wonderful comprehension activity that could accompany this text. It asks meaningful and purposeful questions that allow students to check their understanding.
