Product Description
Dinosaurs Before Dark: Magic Tree House #1 {A Book Study}: This resource is a reader's notebook book study for Dinosaurs Before Dark, by Mary Pope Osborne, a chapter book in the popular Magic Tree House series.

Kids love having their own little notebooks. Teachers love having kids think deeply about text. And who doesn’t love Jack and Annie?

Combine all of this good stuff with my Dinosaurs Before Dark resource. It's easy to prepare and can be used in several ways: as an independent book study, as a focused partner reading assignment, as the framework for a small group student book club, or even with a guided reading group!

The Reader’s Notebook printables include BEFORE-reading, DURING-reading, and AFTER-reading activity pages (two for each chapter = 20 in all, plus a book club meeting agenda 'insert'), specifically designed for each chapter of the story, and aligned to Common Core Standards.
Activities include:
- Informational Text (Building Background)
- Accessing Prior Knowledge
- Vocabulary Study
- Structured Note-taking
- Focus Text Excerpts (Close Reading)
- Taking Text Further (Extending Meaning)
- Chapter Check Ups (Comprehension Questions)

Also included is my "Track It! Jacket" (in two options): a focused note-taking page that students use throughout the story, which gets stapled to the main notebook in a fun and clever way!

Assembly instructions, teacher notes, and answer keys are included as well. (The actual book is NOT included in your purchase.)

*Please note that all the reader's notebook pages in this resource are designed in a half-page layout (two copies of each page will print on each sheet of paper). With each set you print/copy, you'll chop the sheets in half and staple along the top edge, creating two snappy little notebooks! See the preview for a closer look.
