PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Griffin's book about a thirteen year old Black girl who saves George Washington is a GREAT READ ALOUD, especially for either Black History Month or Women in History. Here are questions - including many quotes - ideal for either a read aloud or guided reading. ANSWERS INCLUDED

I've broken up the book into parts and titled each part: Introduction; The Spying Began; Things Happened Quickly. An accompanying vocabulary page is included, aligning with the three parts of the book. For enrichment, I've included a spelling ladder for the vocabulary words that I list, as every CCSS ELA from 3rd to 8th grade lists spelling - age appropriate.

There is a Quiz - fifteen items: multiple choice and complete the sentences.

There is also a word search for names in the novel and a scramble word fill-in.

I've included my three writing topics and the ideas that spark responses from students; one of those writing topics is creative writing.

A short lesson on using quotation marks for dialogue (and applicable to the creative writing topic above) and another for proofreading are included, both using sentences and paraphrasing from the novel.

Common Core State Standards - ELA - in this unit: RL 2, 3, 4; RI 3 W 2, 3
