We like to have students be on the alert for great words to replace overused ones like "said", "big", etc. This book would be a great way to introduce the concept of retiring worn out words. In The Boy Who Cried Fabulous a boy uses the word "fabulous" way too much, so his parents ban the word. Turns out there are a lot of other words with which he can express the wonder with which he views his world.

Possible Strategy Instruction:

  • C: Use prior knowledge to connect with text.
  • A: Cross Checking...Do the pictures and/or words look right? Does it sound right? Does it make sense?
  • F: Adjust and apply different reading rates to match text.
  • E: Tune in to interesting words.
