Product Description

Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis novel unit - 88 pages of student coursework, activities, quizzes, tests, and more aligned with the Common Core State Standards for ELA in Literature for 5th through 7th grade.

Here's what Barbara C. said: This resource is flexible and includes just about every skill development aspect of reading you can think of. It includes prereading, historical context, author information, figurative language, note taking skills, vocabulary, individual reflection, symbolism, and parts of speech to mention a few. My fifth grade class had already started the book, so we took a step back and started to use the materials. They responded well and enjoyed the activities. Excellent resource which will create a more robust reading experience for the students. Great job!!

Steffanie W. said: This is an excellent guide to keep students challenged and engaged in the book. It also covers a variety of standards and is a great resource!! Promotes higher level thinking/questioning.
