PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a custom written literature unit to be used with Sideways Stories From Wayside School by Louis Sachar.

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, an answer key, and suggested curriculum connection activities.
•Student Packet containing vocabulary activities, comprehension questions, and extension activities that correlate with the book.
•An Assessment Packet that contains a vocabulary quiz, an end of the book test in both a short answer and multiple choice format, and an end of the book 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 (65 pages) for grades 4-6 in its entirety. Please email with any questions you may have!

Great, easy to use packet! One note, some worksheets ask the students to identify the page number where they find their answer. Page numbers in the answer key will vary if you are using a different edition of the story...no biggie but just something you note as you start grading! :)
On  March 6, 2012The Teaching Bank answered:
Thank you for your purchase and your feedback. You are correct that the page numbers for the vocabulary words may vary based on new editions of the books, etc. Previously I did not have any page numbers listed, just chapter numbers, but that seemed worse. This way even though the page number may not be exact but it should be pretty close so it will be easier for the teacher to follow along and find the words with a little more ease.
