This fifteen-page resource for teaching Barbara Robinson's delightful novel has three components.
First, PREREADING items include a graphic organizer for writing, group discussion ideas, individual research prompts, writing topics, and a bulletin board idea.
Next is a list of thirty-five selected VOCABULARY words first presented in alphabetical order with page numbers and then in book order with definitions and page numbers. The dictionary and word usage activities cover the vocabulary words in both chapter sequence and as a whole book.
Finally, are CHAPTER-BY-CHAPTER SHORT ANSWER QUESTIONS, ten items per chapter, that are suitable for homework, small group reading, whole class reading, conferencing, or individual assessment. These questions require FACTUAL RESPONSES, rather than interpretation.
The packet comes with full answer keys, including short answer questions.
