This book packet was developed to use with my fourth grade literature circle groups. It can also be used as a guide for read aloud, or for individual students. It is divided into four sections by chapters. The packet contains comprehension questions, questions asking students to cite from the text, short passages or quotes from the text to analyze, a letter to write, and it covers questions with CCSS skills for fourth grade. Also included are spelling/vocabulary lists for the 4 weeks, with homework assignments for 4 days each week, a quiz for each week assessing the spelling/vocabulary, and a list of projects students can create as a culminating activity to the novel. There is no answer key included.
