PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this State Standards-aligned Literature Kit™ Set, we combine 3 of our coming-of-age novel study guides for grades 5-6.

Take a Peek Inside:

Each guide divides the novel by chapters or sections and feature reading comprehension and vocabulary questions. In every chapter, we include Before You Read and After You Read questions. The Before You Read activities prepare students for reading by setting a purpose for reading. They stimulate background knowledge and experience, and guide students to make connections between what they know and what they will learn. The After You Read activities check students' comprehension and extend their learning. Students are asked to give thoughtful consideration of the text through creative and evaluative short-answer questions and journal prompts. Also included are writing tasks, graphic organizers, comprehension quiz, test prep, word search, and crossword to further develop students' critical thinking and writing skills, and analysis of the text.

About Dear Mr. Henshaw:

This Newbery Medal winner classic story is about Leigh Botts, a young boy who lives with his divorced mother and misses his father. The book is a collection of letters written from Leigh to Mr. Henshaw, his favorite author. The letters show increasing emotional and literary complexity as Leigh grows. They also reflect his desire to become a writer. Through his journal, Leigh learns a great deal about writing and about himself.The diary reveals Leigh's loneliness at school and details his troubles with an unknown schoolmate. When Leigh is in sixth grade, Mr. Henshaw writes back to answer the ten questions Leigh sent to him for the Author Report assignment. Through his journal, Leigh learns a great deal about writing and about himself.

About Loser:

Loser chronicles the childhood of Donald Zinkoff who is one of the most unusual, endearing characters ever to grace the pages of a novel for young readers. No matter what the game, Donald never wins. He trips over his own feet, constantly raises his hand without ever knowing the correct answer, and falls down laughing at the mention of any unusual word. The novel traces Donald’s journey from first to sixth grade. It details his important friendships, marks his relationships with different teachers, and describes how he copes with various shortcomings that everyone but Donald and his parents deem terribly important. “Loser” is an excellent novel which deals sensitively with the human spirit and the importance of failure.

About The Great Gilly Hopkins:

A story about a bold and brazen eleven-year-old girl – and foster child – that has great expectations about life! Gilly runs away from her foster home looking for her real mother. Not finding her she begins to adjust to life with the foster family. On Thanksgiving weekend, Gilly is busy taking care of everyone as they had the flu, Gilly’s grandmother shows up.
