I have read these novels with my ESL students, and they LOVE them. I could definitely use more quality novel study materials. Your work, Moon Over Manifest: A Novel Study, is excellent.

How many weeks is your study designed to cover if we cover one section per week? I have used two of your studies for eight weeks.a piece and loved them. Thanks for your work

Reed Novel Studies
Reed Novel Studies  (TpT Seller)
Thank you for your email. Redwall was a lot of fun to do a novel study for because the characters and plot were so unique. Because it is a longer novel than most, I would think it will probably take you about three months to complete, considering the fact that other novels took about two months. Please let me know how it goes and if there are any suggestions you might have regarding alterations or additions to the study.
Thanks again.

Good morning! Our school system is considering purchasing your unit for our fifth grade. I have a couple of questions about your unit. First, what are the major differences between your $7.50 unit and $9.00 unit? Second, do you include correlations to the common core for the entire unit? Third, does the unit include any grammar? If so, what skills? Fourth, would you consider a bulk purchase (35 or more) teachers at a reduced rate? Your units look great, but the school system wants to absolutely sure it meets our needs before purchasing. Thanks!!

The $7.50 units are units of study for each individual novel: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Voyage of the Dawntreader, whereas the $9.00 unit combines both novel studies in one.

Hi Nat,

I am the book review editor for the Tchr2Tchr collaborative blog. I wanted to invite you to be a guest reviewer and write a book review for us. You could review Hatchet and link your novel study guide at the bottom of the review. That was my absolute favorite book to use when I taught 4th grade! Book reviews can be short; the minimum is 200 words, so a paragraph or two. We would also link your store and your blog (if you have one) to the review. It's great exposure!

If you're interested you can find all of the details here:

When I read your question I went back over the Common Core Standards to see how well my novel study units lined up with the expectations outlined in the document. I was very pleased to see how strong a correlation there was. Novel studies such as the one you mentioned typically include the following from the CCS: making references, citing specific textual evidence, determining themes, interpreting words and phrases, working with plot and characters, pov, etc.

What about Where the Red Fern Grows? I loved your novel study guide on A Wrinkle in Time....more importantly, my students loved it!

Great idea. I used this novel a few years ago with my class and loved it. Thanks for the suggestion and kind words.

You should be able to download it after purchase. Please let me know if this is still a problem and I will contact the system administrator of the website. I have sold hundreds of units and it has never been a problem yet :)

I really want to buy your novel study on George's Marvelous Medicine but as im from ireland it will not let me buy it. Do you sell from another site or can I buy it some other way?

Does this include tests as well? Chapter and/or whole novel test?

Thank you....

Unfortunately there are no tests included - only After Chapter questions - good thought, though. I'll have to consider including a whole novel test. Thanks.

Hello Nathanael,

I am going through your document, but some of the stuff is a little bit to hard for my students. I would like to change some of the exercises. Would it be possible to get the word doc, so that I can make a few changes. Thanks Wendy

Buyer re: The Boy in the Striped Pajamas - (Reed Novel Studies)
Hello Nathanael,

Is this unit only in PDF? The reason I ask is that I teach in the Netherlands and the students have English as a second language. Some things maybe a bit too difficult for them so I would like to add some of my own materials and simplify in places. Thanks in advance for your help.
Kind regards
Wendy

I am so glad you have found the study guide for Island of the Blue Dolphins useful. Thank you for your gracious comments. I have about 15 or so novel study units posted on this site, but unfortunately not the two you mentioned. Sorry about that. All the best this year in the classroom.

Hi Nathanael! I LOVE your Island of the Blue Dolphins Unit. I used it last year with my fifth graders. I was just curious if you have any other units that you do not have posted here? We have many novels that we read..specifically I am looking for The Cay and Timothy of the Cay for the spring. Just hoping that you have moere to share! Thanks for your hard work:)

Thanks again for the information. Have made the purchase and looks great.
Only problem is with the fact that we in Oz spell 'pyjamas' with a 'y' not and 'a' .... some great ideas in the unit and will be very useful.
Cheers.

Thanks for the response. Very interesting. I just checked dictionary.com and they confirmed that indeed a British variant is with a "y" - never knew that. Thanks again. I hope you enjoy the unit.
