This is a 10 page note-taking packet of graphic organizers for the award-winning book, Because of Mr. Terupt. Because there are eight main characters, students often have difficulty remembering who is who; this organizer provides a space and framework for taking short notes on each of these characters as they appear in the book.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are looking for a novel study that will provide students with mini-lessons and a framework that guides students through their reading, THIS IS NOT IT! However, I did also create a novel study and you will find it in my store with this title: A NOVEL STUDY FOR BECAUSE OF MR. TERUPT BY ROB BUYEA
. This note-taking organizer appears in that packet as well, so I suggest you not purchase both!
BECAUSE OF MR. TERUPT in a Nutshell:
Published in 2010, this is a first book for Rob Buyea. And what a book it is!
“It’s our bad luck to have teachers in this world, but since we’re stuck with them, the best we can do is hope to get a brand new one instead of a mean old fart,” states fifth grader, Peter, on the first day of school that fateful year. Each student in the class has his/her own viewpoint on what makes school good or bad and each student comes with his/her own life story. Readers will come to know and love seven diverse students and their teacher as they tell the story of this memorable year that ended up changing so many lives. Easy to read; hard to put down...this book is a powerful read for middle grade students (and older).
