The Lemonade War is written by Jacqueline Davies. It is equivalent to a 4.1 reading level and is a perfect book to read with 3rd or 4th grade students. This would be a great novel unit for the whole class, or for a reading group and is aligned with the Common Core Standards for fourth grade.
This novel unit includes:
- Making Predictions Graphic Organizer
- Character Traits Organizers for Evan and Jessie
- Venn Diagram to Compare/Contrast Characters
- Organizers to Compare/Contrast Characters to Self
- Problem and Solution Organizer
- Create Your Own Lemonade Sign Sheet
- Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy Summary Sheet
- Sweet Simile Search Booklet
- Grocery Receipt Reading Activity
- 11 Reading Response Writing Activities (meets Common Core writing- opinion, narrative, and explanatory)
- Making Words Sheet
- How to Make Lemonade Writing Activity
- Our Favorite Type of Lemonade Graphing Activity with Questions to Analyze Data
- Note to Teachers and Additional Resources
- Terms and Credits
*Note: This unit does not contain comprehension questions for the book, so if that is what you desire in a unit, this unit might not be what you are looking for.
I hope you find the activities in this novel unit helpful.
I love the graphics. The pages are very cute. I am not sure if the pages are intended to follow each chapter in order or if the teacher picks/chooses based on what fits the needs at the time. I am thinking for my group I'll do a skill lesson on summarizing say and follow with the summarizing page. Glad I purchased it.

Best novel study guide I have ever purchased! Thanks so much!
I am so glad to hear that The Lemonade War novel unit was a success in your students. Right now, I have one for 43 Old Cemetery Road, Who is Stealing the 12 Days of Christmas, and The Best Christmas Pageant Ever in my store. I am in the process of developing more units. If you have any suggestions for book sets that you already have in your classroom, I would love to hear them. If you have so specific titles in mind, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks so much!

I bought and downloaded this unit but have found several pages are blurry and the boxes and text are not arranged correctly on the page. Thank you for any help.
Hello, and thank you for your purchase! I'm so sorry to hear you're having trouble printing. It does happen occasionally for some reason. Here are some suggestions for this type of issue. First, make sure you have the most current version of Adobe Reader (not preview), especially if you have a Mac. Some information about blurry pages is on your "My Purchases" page of TpT. If that doesn't work, try this advice from TpT Tech Support:
1) Open the PDF file with Adobe Reader
2) Click 'print'
3) Click on 'advanced'
4) Check the 'print as image' box, and this should cover all potential issues.
Also, my friend, Jamie Rector just wrote a blog post for this very issue. Here is the link for other options as well. http://2ndgradestuff.blogspot.com/2013/04/help-i-cant-save-or-print-my-tpt-file.html
If that still doesn't work, email me at email@example.com and we will see if there is another way to get it to you! Thanks so much.
Nicole...I didn't post it on my page. In fact, no one would see it there since I never get on it! The TPT webmaster threw out a question of what we were using that worked well. I'd love for you to check store though if you like.
It was NO problem at all! I am glad it worked for you. :)

Just a thought, but if you were to provide the first page with the name of the author in place of your name, with your name on each page as the others and then we could use this page as a title page for the student booklets.
I am not comfortable removing my name from the cover of my product, but I was more than happy to create an additional page that you can use as a cover for a student booklet. You can download the revised unit under your "My Purchases" tab. I hope it works for you.
