Product Description
Alexander may be children�s author and adult novelist Judith Viorst�s best known character. He stars in 3 of her books, but Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day is by far the best known of the trio. This story is a popular read aloud, and many students enter second grade - the reading level for which this unit has been created - already familiar with it. This familiarity often makes reading it for themselves a welcome challenge.
The first worksheet requires students to return to the text to determine which statements are true and which are false. Writing down six important events and cutting them apart to make a puzzle that another student who has read the story will put together is the object of the unit�s second page. The final comprehension worksheet asks the reader to describe Alexander�s character traits.
The final three pages are designed to encourage writing skills. Students may summarize Alexander�s horrible day in a constructed paragraph, describe a bad day of their own, or take an opposing view and write about a fantastically wonderful day. Teachers/students may select one or more of these pages to serve as an assessment and/or guided writing project. I hope your student enjoys reading and writing about Alexander.
