This is a powerpoint of the
book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst. This book is a level L book according to the leveling criteria set by Fountas and Pinnell. In this contemporary classic, veteran children s author Viorst introduces us to Alexander, a kid with an unruly crop of hair, who gets out of bed to face a day that seems to grow increasingly worse with each passing minute. Indeed, on the very first page, Alexander wakes to hair full of gum, trips on his skateboard, and drops a sweater in a sink full of water. At breakfast, his brothers are having a far better day ??? having found prizes in their breakfast cereal ??? which makes Alexander feel worse. School offers him no respite from his horrible day: he gets reprimanded by a teacher, he gets demoted to third best friend, and at lunch, finds himself without a dessert. Could the day get worse?
