Product Description
Created by Jean Martin, this ready-to-use, CCSS-aligned packet features a 23 page student booklet (plus separate answer key) designed to reinforce essential reading and writing skills for students in grades 4-6. Also included is a listing of Common Core Standards that are supported and a page of Tips for the Teacher including research ideas for students.

Skills focused on in the student booklet include:
 writing to express ideas and opinions
 defining unfamiliar vocabulary
 visualizing
 prefixes, suffixes, root words
 writing crafts: onomatopoeia, simile, metaphor, pun
 inference
 comprehension
 questioning & clarifying
 explaining
 summarizing
 character identification, traits, and changes
 citing evidence from the text
 understanding plot and setting
 determining author’s purpose

Just copy and give three staples on the left side to create student booklets (which can also be used as a great resource to guide parent helpers and/or aides who are assisting your literature groups). The student booklet divides the text into five reading assignments (about 25 pages each) with varied questions and tasks intended to prompt high level thinking and quality group discussions as well as practice in writing to express themselves. It is designed for independent work so that students may be working on this in class while the teacher is meeting with other students. In my classroom students were responsible for completing one reading assignment with the accompanying questions each week. They would be given three, 40 minute periods per week to complete one assignment. They would then meet once a week with me (or an aide or a parent), along with the other students reading the same book (we called this a “book club” meeting) to discuss the book and review the assignments.

Lucky continually worries that Brigitte will someday decide to go back to her beloved France and does all she can to prevent that from happening.
