Made Possible By: Simon & Schuster Children's Books

Superheroes, archnemeses, secrets, and castles, along with funny moments, hope, and “the Frets” (anxiety) are all part of Portico Reeves’ life — a life your students might relate to. Jason Reynolds’ new action-packed illustrated novel, Stuntboy, in the Meantime is a story that speaks directly to young readers and addresses their real-world feelings, like worry, fear, and anxiety, in a positive way. Inspired by Portico’s story, these activities draw on the novel’s engaging graphics and uplifting messages and build students’ empathy and social-emotional learning. Students will enjoy the action and adventure in Stuntboy, in the Meantime, but you do not have to read the book to use the activities below.
