Lesson Plans 11/12-11/21: The Exclamation Point

EXCLAMATION MARK! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, Illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld.
Call # E ROS 

2014-2015 CYRM Nominee
Synopsis
A punctuation mark feels bad that he does not fit in with the others; it’s not easy being different having grown up in a world of periods. Exclamation Mark does not discover his special ability to convey strong emotion—including joy and happiness—until he meets Question Mark and must listen to his seemingly endless questions. However, these questions reveal the possibilities that exist when differences are accepted. From: CYRM Web page at <http://www.californiayoungreadermedal.org/books/exclamation-mark>



Exclamation Point by Mary Elizabeth Salzmann
