This NOVEL UNIT incorporates 5th grade Common Core standards in a thorough exploration of novel, The Best/Worst School Year Ever. This unit includes chapter by chapter activities that allow students to practice comprehension skills, character analysis, drawing conclusions, vocabulary, poetry correlation, and many more pertinent areas of focus. The unit also includes some optional mini-projects, as well as quizzes to monitor comprehension.
Although the actual novel is not very long, this unit may take 3-4 weeks depending on how much time you spend each day. My students enjoyed the activities and the novel. I hope your classes enjoy it as well.
