PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a two-week literature guide for the book titled Keep the Lights Burning, Abbie, by Peter and Connie Roop. The book relates the exciting true story of a girl who kept the lighthouse lamps lit during a dangerous storm.

The mini-guide contains ten sections that include vocabulary exercises, discussion questions, reading activities, life application/Bible connections, and a complete answer key.

This interactive guide enables parents/teachers to facilitate an oral discussion of this book, but it only provides space for one student to complete fill-in-the-blank activities. Check out the following option for using the guide with more than one student:
Reproducible sheets:
Link-Mini-guide for Beginners: Keep the Lights Burning Abbie Reproducibles
The reproducibles contain all of the fill-in-the-blank activities; after you purchase one set of sheets, you may make a copy for each of your students.

Mini-guides were designed for homeschoolers, but can be used in co-ops and schools. For more information about Mini-Guides, check the mini-guide page of the CNS website:

Dear Christian Novel Studies,
Several items in the Reading Guide stood out:
(1) The website noted on page 4 was very interesting and provides great historical information pertaining to the succession of the Matinicus Rock Light House Keepers.
(2) The "lighthouse" coloring page printouts referenced in the Bible/Life Application item on page 4 are fun! Good scriptures!
(3) The art activity suggested to illustrate the metaphor in the story on page 6 was creative! The activity can be extended by having students create their own, original metaphors for the house and towers.
(4) I like your description of "Vivid Verbs" on page 8, which allow the readers to attain clearer mental pictures, e.g. waded, raced, and crashed.
(5) The idea to live like Abbie on page 8 and "Eat only eggs for a day" is a great way for students to empathize with the main character. Fun for the whole family to get involved!
(6) Lastly, the website idea link listed on page 9 for "How to make a lighthouse" was an easy, fun, creative craft. Cute idea!

Great Guide! Keep up the good work!

On  February 16, 2013Christian Novel Studies answered:
The mini-guide contains all of the items from the reproducible sheets. If you are using the mini-guide with one student, that student would write in the mini-guide. If you are using guide with more than one student, however, you will want to get the reproducible sheets.
The reproducible sheets contain all of the fill-in-the-blank activities. When you purchase one copy of the reproducible sheets, you have permission to print one copy for each of your students.

Mini-guides are interactive -- at this time they are not in workbook format, so space is not provided for students to write the answers to the discussion questions. After all of the guides that are available on the CNS website (www.christiannovelstudies.com) are available on TpT, CNS plans to make a student edition for each mini-guide available; space for writing answers will be available in these editions. CNS plans to work on these student editions in summer of 2013, so they should be available by fall of this year.
