Finally something that is succinct and yet thorough. My husband had me purchase this for his Tier Time. He is impressed with the many different activities. Your questions touch all levels of Bloom's, and he likes the focus on vocabulary. You have made his life much easier. Thanks!

On  December 3, 2010J Bowman (TpT Seller) said:
I used this guide and worksheets the most because they provide thought-provoking questions which create a debate atmosphere within the classroom. It got my students engaged and participating. They LOVE the PuppyFind.com activity that researches the Redbone Coonhounds and how much they would cost to today's standards.

My only problem with this is that the page numbers for the vocabulary section do not match up to the newer versions of this novel (I work in a school that recently opened so we got a lot of newer versions of books). The page numbers only match with the older version and I cannot go back and change the page numbers since it's in a PDF format. I was not able to use the vocabulary portion a lot unless I had extra planning time to hunt the words in the chapters and scratch the page numbers on the student sheets.
On  December 3, 2010Mrs. R. answered:
If you send me your email address I will send you the Word copy and then you will be able to make changes. My email is marykayr@mchsi.com Hope this works for you:)
