In the Jackson Library, fourth graders read Interstellar Cinderella on the big screen and made predictions, pre-loaded vocabulary (video of socket wrench in action), observed foreshadowing by the author (Why did the author have Cinderella put the socket wrench in her pocket?) (How will Cinderella escape from the attic?), used context clues, and made comparisons to the original fairy tale. Then I paired the students to take a Kahoot! quiz.
