Product Description
"Donavan's Word Jar" is a captivating novel by Monalisa DeGross. Donavan learns that keeping his exciting collection of words to himself just isn't the best idea at the end of the day - especially when his special words have SO much power and magic! This novel provides a valuable lesson for students in an engaging and rich text!

This novel study guides readers through each of the ten chapters, with a "Before you read" anticipatory question, "While you read" skills practice, and "After you read" questions, including "Dig Deep!" questions which require students to use higher thinking skills to answer inference, characterization, prediction, and analytical questions. A creative writing ("Using the Power of Words") assignment and grading rubric are also included.

In this novel study, students will build up their skills with constructed responses, supporting responses / opinions with text evidence, and thinking critically! The novel is a Guided Reading Level N novel (Lexile 690 / DRA 30), and questions cover a wide variety of standards for each of the 2nd-4th grade levels. Most questions are constructed response and ask for more critical thinking skills than simple recall questions - perfect for group book discussions!

A complete answer key is provided to give teachers guidance in teaching this novel! Multiple possible responses, text citations, teaching notes/ideas, and helpful hints are all included to facilitate your instruction.

This novel study is useful for book clubs, guided reading, literature circles, and independent reading! Download the preview for a quick tour of this product. Happy reading!
