For this Mary Downing Hahn page-turner, here is a Novel Study with student questions and activities for every chapter: reading comprehension, fact retrieval, cause/effect, positive v. negative, prediction, opinion/validation, and more. No answers for this part.
Two activities are a creative letter writing assignment and a poetry connection. Together these suggest ideas, provide some organization skills, and enrich students' fluency and voice.
Other activities included are spelling/vocabulary puzzles and worksheets, a word search for names in the novel, illustration opportunities, and a lesson and worksheets for using quotation marks which is necessary in one of the activities .
There are quizzes ALL WITH ANSWER KEYS as follows:
-a one page quiz for Ch. 1 to 5 (T/F and matching);
-a one page quiz for Ch.6 to 11 (multiple choice and fill in the blanks);
-a two page quiz for Ch. 12 to 20 (matching, which occurred first, listing as per directions).
Perfect novel for Halloween!
