Global Read Aloud Update

We've read the first 7 chapters of the book The Little Prince so far. In our first effort to collaborate with other schools across the country, we are sharing our answers to the following question:

How do you predict that the Prince and the narrator will escape from the desert?

Here's what the students came up with:

think they will get out by fixing the airplane and he is going to tell everybody about it.



I think that they are going to make something like something that flies.



I think hes going to escape the desert is that his car or something is going to work a little and he’s going to get help from people and they fix the car and after that he is going to fly or drive back home.



Maybe they will find a mechanic and he’ll fix the plane.



I think they’re going to take the airplane apart then make it in to a teleport device. So then they can teleport to the planet, so then the might save the planet.



The way I think the little prince and the narrator are going to get out of the dessert is that they are going to send a message to the planet that the little prince lives on. And they will come and get them.



I think Little Prince is going to escape by fixing the plane and flying to a different state or city.



I think hes going to escape the desert is that his car or something is going to work a little and hes going to get help from people and they fix the car and after that he is going to fly or drive back home



I think that they are going to fix the plane and get help.



I think he will call with his speakerphone and they will save them.



I think he’s going to fix the plane and learn where Little Prince came from.



I think they will find a tree to climb up and escape to the Prince’s planet.

If you are a reading this and you're a student, teacher, or classroom participating in the Global Read Aloud, PLEASE leave a comment to let us know what you think. We'd love to hear your thoughts. THANKS! And stay tuned for our pictures of a boa constrictor eating an elephant!

Hello Room 302. I am a fourth grade teacher in Flint. We are also reading The Little Prince, but we have only read chapters 1-6 so far. I love your predictions about how the Prince will escape. You have many creative ideas! My students are excited about writing on your blog. Watch for their posts soon. : )

I think making a teleporter is a great idea. If he made a teleporter, where will he go?
-Brandon

I think it's cool he might teleport. It might send him somewhere else instead of the Little Prince's planet.
-Gene

I think he's going to fix his plane and learn where the Little Prince comes from.
-Ardeija

I think he is going to find a mechanic to help fix the plane, so he can fly to his planet and save it.
-Zontavin

I think it is a great idea for him to get a speaker phone on his airplane, and for him to call for help.
-Donovan

I think they are going to fix the plane and get help. I think it's true because the boy was trying to fix it, and if the Little Prince helps then they can fix it and put a microphone on the plane.
-Mary Jane

I think that it might be a good idea because I think the Little Prince can help fix the plane.
-Jessena

I think it would be cool to see 44 sunsets, but the sun might burn your eyes.
-Carissa

I agree that they are going to make a teleport to the planet, and that they are going to save the Little Prince.
-LaAngel

I think that all the little creatures on the planet are going to help him put the airplane back together.
-Nya

I think that the Little Prince will help save the plane so they can go back to his planet.
-Adrice

I think the Little Prince should fix the plane and fly back to where he came from.
-Charissa

I think the man will and fix the plane, and escape the desert.
-Kenneth

He might get his plane fixed and fly to the Little Prince's planet, and then help fix his planet.
-Jetia

They might find a mechanic, which would be a good idea because then they would have help and the Little Prince could go home.
-Keith

Thank you for the wonderful comments, Mrs. Wilson's class! We can't wait to hear what you think about the next question: How is the prince getting from planet to planet?
