This is a novel study for the book Dash by Kirby Larson. The book activities are broken up into 18 sections; one for each chapter. Students will also have the opportunity to practice reading, literacy, writing, and language skills which can be assigned depending on the needs of your students and the concepts you are most in need of reinforcing. This novel study works well as a distance learning alternative, in a Daily 5/CAFE setting, as a literature circle reading group log, as well as in a traditionally structured reading class.
