The story Click Clack Quack to School has a fun twist at the end, and it leads nicely into talking about behavior expectations and how they are different depending on the school activity.

After your read-aloud, use this Doreen Cronin book companion, from my Learning through Literature series, to extend the story with engaging standards-based literacy skill practice.
