I loved this book. I would use this just as max did. I would have the students cut out words they know from magazines ( words they like, ate, played with, etc). Then I would challenge them to from word they dont know and look them up so it can be words they do know. While finding words they dont know, they will find more words that they do know. Next I would have them make sentences with the piles of words they have. Then they could turn thier sentences into stories. I love that this helps students learn so many literacy skills while doing something so simple and easy.

Also, many of the words that Max found were drawn words ( a picture of the word as it is written). I would have students write word in this way. This is connecting words that they know with the picture of it. Also, I would do this with unknown words. I would have them find ( or give them) unknown words that they would have to define. Then with the definition, students would have to draw the word artisitcally.
