You're welcome. My students had fun with the writing project as well. We took many photos and made a cute bulletin board with their writings and the photos. Enjoy!

I absolutely love this! It's so thorough and it's creative. My kids love to color and draw even though they are in middle school. Thank-You for sharing this with us. TEWMS 6th grade Jaguars loved the activity.
On  February 1, 2014Gay Miller answered:
Thank you! You just put a big smile on my face with your kind words. I'm glad the "Jaguars" enjoyed the activities.

I am looking for a unit on The Secret Garden that is as comprehensive as the one you wrote for Holes.
Please let me know if you plan on writing one for this book.
On  December 14, 2013Gay Miller answered:
I'm sorry. I have no plans to write a unit for The Secret Garden at this time. It is a great book, and I wish you luck in finding materials to teach it.

I was frantically searching for author's purpose ideas for my formal observation in my 3rd grade class. Your lesson plan is a Godsend. Literally, because Wellsfargo had just called because of an abnormal amount of activity on our credit card and we canceled it because of expected fraud, so I couldn't even charge for a few days. Thank you so much for your generosity. Your activities are very well thought out.
On  September 25, 2013Gay Miller answered:
Thank you! This is actual a lesson for my formal observation from two years ago. I left off some of the Tennessee specific information, but you have the main components. I hope your observation goes well! ;>)

All of your products match my curriculum perfectly. I was curious as to how this could be until I read About Seller and saw you are in Johnson County Schools. Is that the one in TN? I am in Johnson City Schools. :)
On  January 14, 2013Gay Miller answered:
Yes, I teach in Tennessee. This lesson was written for one of my evaluations last year. It was written by the TEAM model; although, I did cut out parts that I didn't think others would need. It's a small world.

The analogy lesson that is also one of my free items was for another evaluation lesson. You might want to take a look at it as well. Enjoy!

This is a very comprehensive resource for teaching author's purpose. My students struggle with the test language when the text goes beyond PIE, and I think this may clarify their thinking. Thanks so much for making it a freebie. It's nicely done.

Thank you! This was a lesson I pulled together last year for an evaluation. The students enjoyed the activities.
