Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "The Kids' Table" by Anita Celli.

In Anita Celli's short story "The Kids' Table," a boy doesn't want to eat at the kids' table on Thanksgiving.

As we read, we will be discussing the theme of Growing Up as it relates to the text. We are trying to answer this big question :

"What does it mean to be grown up?"

Ways to support your child:

  • Ask your child about this short story at home:
    • What was "The Kids' Table" about?
    • What did you learn about Growing Up?
  • Watch Small Talk | Growing Up | CBC Kids at home with your child.
