Tired of worksheets that ask students only lower level comprehension questions? Want some reading activities that will really cause your students to think? This packet contains activities that encourage students to read, re-read, and write about what they read. The questions ask students to cite several pieces of textual evidence to support their conclusions. (Common Core ELA standard 7.1) This packet includes reading and writing activities for chapters 1, 5, 6, 9, 13, and 15 of Cheaper by the Dozen. A great way to spark thoughtful discussions!
