Novel study packet for the book Almost Starring Skinnybones by Barbara Park (Lexile level 620 for grades 2-3). This packet prepared by My Reading Resources includes a student packet with short answer questions, vocabulary, writing prompts, and discussion questions for each of three sections of the book. Questions address many CCSS for grades 2 and 3. Students can work on these packets independently while you meet with other guided reading groups OR do them as homework. A list of suggested projects for students to complete after reading the book is included. Word wall cards and a set of cards to match words to definitions are included, too. You can glue them to index cards and laminate them to make them all a uniform size and for extra durability. Just for fun, there’s a set of “I Have – Who Has” cards to reinforce the learning of the vocabulary words. For easy assessment there is a multiple choice “final exam” and 3 vocabulary crossword puzzles. Students will find it necessary to read the book carefully and thoroughly for FACTUAL CONTENT in order to score well on the final exam.
