Monitor and Adjust Reading Speed
•I’m not sure what the writer means by “backhome.”
It’s written as one word. That seems strange. I need
to slow down while I read to understand what the
author is trying to say here.
•Okay, now I see that the narrator’s family moved
from Russia to New York. They found their new
home very different from life in Russia. Russia is
what the narrator means by “backhome.”

Speed
•I see a word that I don’t understand here—
babushka. Maybe if I slow down my reading
speed and look at the illustrations while I
read I can figure it out.
•The story tells me that the little girl liked to
throw her babushka in the air. In the
picture, the girl is throwing something in the
air. It must be her babushka. In the picture
all the women and girls are wearing big
scarves on their heads. I guess that’s what a
babushka is.

•I’ll think carefully about what I’ve read so
far in the story and what I can learn from
the story’s pictures.
•I know that the quilt is used on special
occasions, like a wedding and the birth of a
baby.
•I predict the narrator will use the quilt at
her wedding and when her child is born.
•After I finish reading the story I’ll check to
see if my prediction came true.
Confirming Predictions
•My prediction was confirmed. The
narrator/author, Patricia Polacco, did use the
quilt at her wedding and again as a blanket for
her baby daughter, Traci Denise.
