MR. BELINSKY’S BAGELS – Ellen Schwartz – READING LESSONS & EXTENSION ACTIVITIES

By: Elly Elementary

In the reading lessons for Mr. Belinsky’s Bagels by Ellen Schwartz, students embark on a delightful journey through the heartwarming tale of a young boy named Eli, who discovers the art of making bagels with his grandfather. The lessons focus on developing key reading skills such as comprehension, vocabulary, and critical thinking by exploring the narrative’s themes of family, tradition, and entrepreneurship. To extend the learning experience, students can engage in creative extension activities, such as hands-on bagel making sessions, where they can apply their newfound knowledge and experience the cultural significance of the story. Additionally, discussions on the book’s moral lessons and character development can inspire reflective writing assignments, encouraging students to draw connections between the fictional world of Eli and their own lives. These activities aim to foster a deeper appreciation for literature while promoting interdisciplinary learning and cultural awareness.
