This product contains 12 pages of activities directly related to the literature standards 1-6 for 6th grade. The standards included are the key ideas and details standards and the craft and structure standards. The standards for integrating details did not fit well with this type of product and are not included.
Also included is a Smart Notebook version of the PDF file. It was created by importing the PDF file. Therefore, each page was imported as an image and the text on the pages is not able to be edited. This is done in accordance with the requirements of some of the creative elements I used to create the product. The borders are not able to be sold in products in which the images can easily be reused by others who have not purchased the product themselves. But, the SmartNotebook file will make it easy to view the journal pages on a screen to help with instruction and discussion.
The suggested use for this product is to use individual pages, multiple copies of individual pages, or the entire packet to fit your instructional needs. These pages can be used with any novel or longer text to allow for analysis. As such, they can be used multiple times throughout the year.
Note that this product is mostly intended for practice and not initial instruction. Students should have an understanding of the standards being used if you want students to work independently.
You can use these pages to supplement your instruction, for extra guided practice for struggling students, or for independent practice for your higher achievers.
The nature of the product is kept general with vocabulary from the standards included so as not to confuse students. Teachers teach in different ways and at different depths. So, overall, each page is general enough to be used for multiple texts, but still specific to the standards.
There are no page numbers because I believe teachers may want to duplicate pages to create customized packets depending on what instruction is going on at any given time. Having multiple copies of the same page may be confusing during work time. You can easily write in a page number on the bottom prior to copying if you want to make longer packets.
While the questions are specific to 6th grade standards, other grade levels may find something beneficial as well.
