I have created three brochures which contain one question/activity for each chapter (chapters 1 through 17) of Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis (Lexile 950). I did group chapters 1 through 3 together in the brochure. Throughout those chapters I normally have my students identify Bud's characteristics and then complete their poem. Once my students complete the book I normally have them compose an additional chapters (i.e. what Bud's life is like living with his grandfather).
These brochures are great to use for guided reading.
