PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a custom written literature unit to be used with James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl.

This unit is designed to be used with some student/instructor interaction. It can also be revised as an independent study for the student. It is written for the 3-5th grade reading level.

This unit works great in a one-on-one setting for home school or for a teacher to use as a resource in the classroom for a small group or entire class. The unit is designed so that you can start teaching immediately with little to no preparation on your part. Great time saver!

This unit contains:
• Teacher Packet containing detailed daily lesson plans, answer keys, and suggested curriculum connection activities.
• Student Packet containing vocabulary activities, comprehension questions, and extension activities that correlates with the book.
•An Assessment Packet that contains a vocabulary quiz, a comprehension quiz in both a short answer and multiple choice format, and a writing assessment.
• Common Core Standards Alignment for grades 3-5.
• An after the book activity packet that can be used with any book.

**Please download the free preview to see sample pages of all parts of this unit as well as the complete CCSS alignment checklist (221 pages) for grades 3-5 in its entirety. Please email with any questions you may have!

Thank you for a wonderful, in-depth novel study. I have organized this into a unit incorporating three other novel studies for differentiation, and hitting a variety of modalities when studying the novel. Thank you!!!

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  March 11, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Hi there...are there questions that a student can answer for each chapter or just a few?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 11, 2013The Teaching Bank answered:
Hi,

The comprehension portion of the unit covers the entire book. The number of questions per chapter vary, but there is at least one question for every chapter, except chapter 35, which is a short chapter.

Please download the free preview on the listing page to see an example page from all parts of the unit.

Thank you for your interest and please email with any additional questions.
Shelley @ The Teaching Bank
On  October 31, 2012Amanda White (TpT Seller) asked:
Does this unit include skills such as cause and effect and fact and opinion???
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 31, 2012The Teaching Bank answered:
Hi,
Thank you for your interest! There are not isolated skill lessons incorporated into the unit. The comprehension questions would address some cause/effect responses but nothing that is isolated. There is not a fact/opinion aspect included.
