This is a response notebook type packet containing questions and activities to accompany Twister on Tuesday, book 23, in the Magic Tree House Series by Mary Pope Osborne. The notebook / packet can be used to teach throughout the Twister on Tuesday book study. I originally planned to use mine with my intervention group, and I now hope to eventually include my reading and social studies classes also.
Pages included are as follows:
-Similar cover sheet with a name space suitable for a student notebook / packet cover should the purchaser so choose
-Question Sheets covering each chapter (3 questions per chapter; 2 chapters per sheet)
-Tornado Extension Research Sheet
-Pioneers on the Prairie Extension Research Sheet
-Meet Jack, Annie, Jeb, Will, and Kate Sheet (grammar/adjectives)
-You be the Author Sheet where students can use their imaginations and creativity to rewrite the ending of the story
-You are a Meteorologist Sheet where students can use their knowledge and creativity to inform viewers what to do in preparation for a tornado
-Story Elements Sheet for students to record the characters, setting, problem, key events, solution, and theme of the story
-Finger Feedback! Here students can rate the book and explain their thoughts about it by rating it anywhere from 1 – 5 fingers and then explaining the reasoning behind their choice.
--for each of the chapter questions (chapters 1-10)
--for the Tornado Extension Sheet
--for the Pioneers on the Prairie Extension Sheet
*The answer keys are included as guides, but of course class discussions could provide additional answers. :o)
I have tagged this as compatible with certain ELA Common Core State Standards for 2nd and 3rd grades, but readers of other elementary grades would enjoy this book also. :o)
I included the extension sheets (Tornado and Pioneers on the Prairie) as extra research and information seeking opportunities for students. My students love any reason to find things in library books and on the computer! :o)
I hope you enjoy the packet and it will be helpful to you and your students!
Good for one classroom use only. Please respect my work and do not distribute unless additional licenses are purchased. :o)
