Comprehension Guide to use with the following book Afternoon on the Amazon, Sunset of the Saberthooth, Midnight on the Moon, Dolphins at Daybreak, and Ghost Town at Sundown
Do your students love the books that are about a HOUSE that is in a TREE that is MAGIC? Are you looking for a quick, easy and FUN companion for the books? Well here it is! This Comprehension Guide was made just for this book –BOOKS #6-10 (Afternoon on the Amazon, Sunset of the Saberthooth, Midnight on the Moon, Dolphins at Daybreak, and Ghost Town at Sundown).
Each page focuses on a specific reading skill or strategy and each chapter has its own page in the guide. These pages were created specifically for the events of that chapter. I really wanted to focus on just one thing per chapter. Students won’t just be answering questions, they will also be filling out graphic organizers, drawing pictures, finding text evidence, inferring and looking closely at words.
The guides for these books –BOOKS 6-10- includes:
• Inferring using text evidence
• Cause and Effect
• Important events for beginning, middle, end
• Activating prior knowledge
• Text-to-Self Connections
• Word meaning
• Drawing based on descriptions Drawing Conclusions
• Text-to-Self Connection
• Answering questions with text evidence
• Character and descriptive words
• Descriptive words
• Main idea
• Lesson learned
• Text-to-Self Connections
• Explain what happened
• Answer questions
• Problem Solution
• Explain your thinking
• Fact finding
An answer key is included so that you have an idea of students should be including, without having to completely read the book or chapter to help guide them if needed.
These Comp Guides are super easy to assemble. The Guide itself prints 3 pages double sided (print pages 1&2, 3&4, 5&6 together). Keep the pages in the order in which they come out of the printer/copier, fold in half so the cover page is on the outside and stable in the middle…done!
You can buy the Comp Guides individually for books 1-10 or you can buy them bundled at a discounted price. Bundle 1 is for books 1-5 and Bundle 2 is for books 6-10. I plan on making more depending on how well these are received.
