Activity Overview


Text Connections
Text to Text Connection that reminds you of something in another book or story
Text to Self Connection that reminds you of something in your life.
Text to World Connection that reminds you of something happening in the world.

The Stories Julian Tells is a great book for young readers because many of the stories are relatable to children. The small chapter book is loaded with many different life experiences: losing your first tooth, growing a garden, or making a friend. Students can easily make text-to-self connections throughout the book.

In this activity, students will create a storyboard showing some of the text-to-self connections they made throughout the book.

Here is an example:

Chapter 1: The Pudding Like a Night on the Sea


Text: "My father is a big man with wild black hair. When he laughs, the sun laughs in the windowpanes. When he thinks, you can almost see his thoughts sitting on all the table and chairs. When he is angry, me and my little brother, Huey, shiver to the bottom of our shoes.”


Self: My dad is a big man with wild grey hair. He also has a big booming laugh, but when he is angry I know to stay away from him.
