This is a great novel study for the month of December. Your students will be caught up with the mystery of a dog that the gang found. Who does it belong to? Can they find the owner before Christmas? How did the dog go missing...again? This study is split up by chapters 1-3, 4-6, and 7-9 so that you can easily do this in one week. There is also a main idea and detail page using gingerbread men and a fact and opinion ornament page. It's the perfect mix of reading comprehension and Christmas fun!
