For Chasing Vermeer, this Novel Study includes:
One page quizzes for each of these sets of 4 chapters: Ch 1-4; 5-8; 9-12; 13-16; 17-20.
A two page quiz for Ch 21-24.
ALL ANSWER KEYS INCLUDED FOR THE ABOVE
I have added a glossary and two pages of work sheets for word study, which include spelling ladders. Spelling is on every 3 to 8 grade level's CCSS Language standards, and the spelling ladders (puzzles) are a low-key way to approach that.
There is also a one page "Following the Mystery's Path" graphic representation for the mystery in the novel.
Also included is a tri-fold to trace the sequence of events in a single chapter; may be used multiple times.
See Preview for a detailed list of the construction of each quiz.
There is an activity that leads to an essay, with topics for group or class discussions.
Another activity encompasses simulated 'pentominoes.'
Also included is a word search for names in the novel, a work sheet for learning about inference, a glossary, and a chart style journal handout.
Teacher suggestions are here too.
I've added the two page response form I use (not listed on the Table of Contents) for literature circles when I want the students to move quicker than with standard literature circle response forms.
This works well as an all-class novel, guided reading, or with groups.
