Aye, Caramba! This 92 page packet has everything you can think of to use with the muy funny Skippyjon Jones books! (Right now, it's for the 5 first books. I will have an update as soon as I get the newest one in my possession!)
What you will find in this jam-packed packet:
Comprehension pages for retelling, story maps, favorite parts of story, venn diagrams, problem and solution, personal connections, looking at illustrations to gain more info, character traits and a page to write about their favorite from ALL books.
I included a cause and effect cut and paste for each book.
I also used the stories to reinforce the "shades of meaning" common core standard. I have 4 activities to teach/review with, including a fun moving around the room to different cards to order!
There are multiple writing prompts with a bulletin board idea.
I have a fun non-standard measuring with beans (you'll need to provide the beans)
But wait! There's more! I have a mini-research packet included for students to gather basic info about Chihuahuas and Siamese Cats.
And I took the most frequent/useful Spanish words out of the books and have cards for students to use as a game to match the English to Spanish word, or to just have as a display as you read them.
Essential Question posters are included.
Please check out my blog in the near future for a glimpse of this in action in my room! Rulin' The Roost
