In this humorous personal narrative, Terry gets into an uncomfortable situation when he is forced to ride to school with a smelly goat, but it leads him to a second chance when the goat eats his unfinished project on the day it is due. The Goat-Mobile comes from the Grade 2 Small-Group Resources kit but can be used by any students at a Level N instructional reading level.
Use this book to teach essential literacy skills and to prompt discussion about the SEL competency, making ethical choices. After reading, use the embedded Partner Talk and Going Solo activities to bridge reading and writing with a focus on using dialogue to show character.

JillE Literacy was created by educator, author, and international literacy consultant Jill Eggleton, QSO. Since her earliest days as a classroom teacher in New Zealand, Jill has known that there is no room for struggle, pain, or boredom in reading.
Teachers need books that work as hard as they do. Today’s teachers have more demands on their time than ever. JillE Literacy lets teachers spend less time planning and more time teaching.
Engagement is key. There is no room for struggle, pain, or boredom in reading. To engage young readers, teachers need books and poems that spark emotion, imagination, critical thinking, curiosity, and creativity.
Foundational literacy skills need to be explicitly and systematically taught. You cannot read if you can’t decode accurately. However, you cannot learn to read by just learning to decode. JillE Literacy embeds explicit instruction and repeated practice in foundational literacy skills throughout every text, uniquely using highly engaging books and poems rather than the usual dull, decodable texts.
