June Grades 1 & 2 Book Club


For June's Grades 1-2 Book Club, we read My Father's Dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannett. Ben, Thomas, and Ravi were present for the discussion. Also, we wrote our own short stories by imagining what other animals Elmer Elevator could have encountered on his adventure and how the interactions may go. 

1. Who is the narrator? 

2. Who is the main character? 

3. How would you describe Elmer?

4. What does Elmer Elevator want to do?

5. How does Elmer learn about the dragon? 

6. What things does Elmer pack for his trip to Wild Island?

7. What would you pack in your backpack for a trip to Wild Island?

8. What animals does Elmer meet on his trip? How does he distract them?

9. How does the story end?

10. What was your favorite part of the story?

Please rate this book from 1–5, with 1 being the worst and 5 being the best.
