Read Aloud: Thunder Boy Jr.

Here's your Tuesday read aloud Monarch readers! I hope you enjoy Sherman Alexie's Thunder Boy Jr. as much as I do.

Discussion Questions:

1. Why does Thunder Boy Jr. want a different name?

2. Thunder Boy Jr. is named after his father. Do you know where your name comes from? Are you named after someone else?

3. If you could change your name to something different, what would it be? Why?

4. How are you similar to your family members and how are you unique?

Choose one (or more than one) of these questions and write me a comment to tell me your answer!
