Digging in to Literature

Earth Day is coming up and I don't need an excuse to play in the dirt!  
I LOVE it when learning gets messy in a good way.  
This is one of my favorite stories.  It's written from the earthworm's perspective and it's perfect for practicing inference and text-to-self connection strategies. 
Check out my literature response activities on TPT for a great follow up to this story!
Wiggling Worms at Work is a perfect non-fiction companion to Diary of a Worm.  This read aloud helps build background knowledge and has some great information to share with the kids before we start our investigation into the wonderful world of worms!
Come back later this week for some live worm action...
