We got to this page and one student decided they were on a romantic date because of the candlelight. From there on my students inferred that the chicken and the fox were in love, going to get married, and have fox and chicken babies.
Here are a couple of more pages from the book.
We responded to the book by making an inference about the fox and making these cute fox faces. I have had this fox pattern for almost 20 years. I got it from my cooperative teacher when I was student teaching. Thank you Beckie! I love that I am still doing some of the things that you and I did together.
"I can infer that the fox will want to date her."
