A Bear Called Paddington Complete Novel Study British Version 4th-6th Grade

Please note: This version is in British English. If you would like American English version, please see this product.

This is a 100+ page novel study to A Bear Called Paddington by Michael Bond. This is the classic story of Paddington, the bear from darkest Peru that ends up in Paddington Station in London after being a stowaway on a boat. The Brown family takes him in, and Paddington has many adventures as he adjusts to British life. This book would work well for 4th, 5th, and 6th grades.

This novel unit has Common Core style questioning. There are focus lessons on idioms, characterization, writing a book review, and more.

Geography lessons are integrated throughout the novel unit.

Please see the preview for the table of contents. All activities are ready to be printed and copied. An answer key is provided, as well as a rubric for the two final project options.

When creating these guides, the activities are written so that they could be used as individual activities or as a packet that could be given to an independent reading group. The activities are a mix of close reading questions and engaging writing activities. Vocabulary is emphasized heavily.

This guide is broken down into chapters plus after the book activities. One chapter is covered in one day, although the classroom teacher could provide more than one class period for the activities to be completed.

If using this book as an independent work packet, copy the activities for each student and place the copies in a binder. During class, students can take the binder and easily see what they need to complete as a checklist is provided for each day. Students could be required to turn in certain activities, or the teacher could grade the activities in the binder.

If using this as a whole class activity, the teacher should simply select which activities to use and copy the desired pages.
