Thanks for checking out my “Alice in Wonderland” literature packet! Whether you are reading this classic aloud to your class or your students are reading this as a novel unit, these activities are sure to cause your students to love this story even more while focusing on reading strategies that are part of any good reading teachers’ bag of skills (also aligned with Common Core).
This Literature packet includes
1. Vocabulary and before reading activities
2. During reading strategy work – mainly focused on summarizing,
visualizing, asking questions, and cause & effect
3. After reading response/extension activities – character analysis,
4. Vocabulary and Comprehension Review/Quizzes (answer key for vocab - Comp.Quizzes answers may vary)
My literature packets (as well as my novel units) are created to be used in a classroom that is active, discussion based, and free of mindless worksheets. I usually create a student journal with graphic organizers (similar to what is found here), in which students keep track of their observations, thinking, and writing throughout the study. If you are looking for a stack of worksheets, please don’t purchase this, as you will be disappointed. These are intended to stir students’ thinking, collect their thoughts in an organized way, and guide them into forming their own conclusions and evaluations of what they read. Quizzes and comprehension questions are not meant to see if they can recall random facts, but to assess students’ understanding of the text. My students are always allowed to use their books when answering such questions, as they are able to look back at the text when they take their state assessments.
