The Fortune Tellers

The Fortune-Tellers - Lloyd Alexander, Trina Schart Hyman

AR: 4.6

Grade Level: K-2nd

Summary: The Fortune Tellers is about a carpenter who thought his life would stay the same. So he often wondered, hmmm. What will my fortune hold? He then goes to a fortune teller to see what his fortune is, which eventually comes true.

Idea: The Fortune Tellers introduces a series of cause and effect relationships. It also introduces vocabulary that many children may not have encountered yet. I will most definitely be using this book for a lesson on context clues. A fun activity that I would like to include with this book would be writing to your future self. We would not so much be telling our fortunes, but instead seeing where we want to be in the near future.
