Writing Opportunity: Discussion Questions Part 3

The last set of Discussion Questions we need to include in our manuscript for submitting to Kaeden Books is:

After Reading

These are questions the teacher can ask the student AFTER they finish reading the book. Once again, these questions support the Common Core State Standards, and in the case of the manuscript I’m preparing and perhaps you are too, the KINDERGARTEN standards for reading informational text or nonfiction.

Once again, look at the sample discussion questions in Fiesta, and Flowers at Kaeden Books.

This section is a great place to write questions that support these particular standards:
Key Ideas and Details:
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.K.1
With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text.

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.K.2
With prompting and support, identify the main topic and retell key details of a text.

So go ahead and write three questions. Again, try not to stress out too much about these or overwrite them. If you simply draw a blank, it’s okay to use some of the wording on the Fiesta book or Flowers book to use in your own manuscript.

After you’re done with these, do a happy dance! We’re finished with the main draft of our manuscript. Yay! For a week or so, I’ll be taking a break from working on this project to spend time celebrating the holidays with family and friends. I know you’ll be busy celebrating, too!

And then in the New Year, I’ll be sharing how to go through the submission process. I’ll give you a cover letter you can copy from to prepare to send with yours. Plus, I’ll share with you a super duper successful strategy I’ve landed numerous contracts with. I hope you use this strategy and land a contract with Kaeden Books, too.

To give you a heads up for what exciting things you can look forward to in the year ahead after we finish this manuscript and submit it (We’ll do this sometime in January) here’s what I’m planning to do:

I’ll show you how to do this whole process and write a brand new manuscript and submit it in just 3 weeks to Kaeden Books.

After that, I’ll show you how to do the whole process again and write another brand new manuscript and submit it in just 1 week!

And then we’ll move forward and write a chapter book. I’ll show you the process I take so that you can write one and submit it to Kaeden Books, too.

So get ready for more fun in the New Year!
