Most of my experience with this book has been with students in 3rd-5th grade. Just last week, I was working with a group of 4th grade boys and I was using David Shannon's The Rain Came Down to teach a mini-lesson on cause and effect.
The students were using sticky notes to write down cause and effects that they read about. They loved the book and it was a great way to practice finding cause and effects when reading!
On an exciting note, I got my new blog design put in yesterday! I LOVE IT!!! Thank you so much Honey Bunch Blog Design!!!!
