Whenever I choose a novel as a read aloud for my class, I try to get the most bang for my buck. If I am going to spend 10-15 minutes each day reading aloud to my students, I want to be able to extend the novel with as many skills as possible.
If your students are fans of the series, than this might be a great resource for you. Included in this resource are 5 pages of questions for each chapter. Your students will be able to work on those grammar and phonics skills they may be struggling on while enjoying a "big kid" book.
There are questions basic enough for your kindergarten classroom and appropriate enough for a second grade and low third grade classroom.
This resource requires NO PREP. All the thought and planning has been done for you, breaking down each chapter into easy to read questions. There are suggested answers included for many of the questions. These pages are INK FRIENDLY!!
***PLEASE NOTE, this is a GUIDE and DOES NOT include the novel. This resource is intended to help target specific ELA skills while reading the novel.***
The skills this resource covers are:
* rhyming (production and identification)
* segmenting and blending
* isolation of sounds (beginning, middle, ending)
* phoneme addition, switching and deletion
* nouns (common and proper)
* adverbs and adjectives
* verbs (past and present)
* sentences (subject and predicate)
* each chapter has a black/white printer friendly cover sheet that
can be used if you choose to break up the chapters when printing
This resource can be used on a SMART board or if you wanted to preserve it and make it a little more "presentation" style, you could have this printed and bound. The choice is yours:)
