Reader’s Response: A Chair For My Mother


Posted by Mrs. Wells | Posted in Book Reviews, Critical Thinking, Reader's Response | Posted on 05/16/2013

“A Chair For My Mother” is a wonderful story about a girl, her mom, her grandma and a jar full of coins. The girl lives with her mom, a waitress, and her grandma in a small apartment. One day, on their way back to their apartment, they discovered it had caught on fire and they have lost everything they had. They moved to a new aparment, but since they had no furniture at all, they start saving up money to buy a new chair.
After reading the book, we discussed what it would feel like to lose everything you had. So, for this post you will think about the following:
1-What lesson do we learn from the characters in the story? 2– What context clues did you use to understand the expression ” There’s no good place for me to take a load off my feet”?
3-If you lost everything you had, what would you miss the most?
