Product Description

This unit will have your students on the edge of their seats--and working on skills! The House on Hackman's Hill by Joan Lowery Nixon is great for Halloween, a cross-curricular Egyptian study, or anytime you need an attention-grabber that kids will love. Use for guided reading, a read-aloud, independent reading, or a literature circle selection. Is there an Egyptian mummy--and the ancient god Anubis protecting it--in the deserted house? Talk about spooky cliff-hangers! 37 page unit packed with close reading/active listening activities to pick and choose for your needs. See the Preview for a sample.

-- Half-page chapter quick checks/exit tickets for active listening OR if students are reading the book. Excellent variety of tasks.

--Two vocabulary worksheets: one featuring illustrations of old-fashioned terms used in the 1911 flashbacks and one requiring students to use context clues for the contemporary vocabulary words--context clues mini-lesson included.

--Ten short-answer activities for close reading, such as a letter to the author and a character study.

--ANSWER KEYS for all activities, teacher notes, and Common Core Standards covered for sample grade levels.

Visually-appealing format for grades 4-6 or high interest/low vocabulary for 7th. The handouts are black and white for easy photocopying. You could cut each handout in half or use the full sheet. Also includes decorated lined sheets for use with the short answer activities.

Higher-level skills include literary terms (mood, theme, foreshadowing and more), main ideas/details, inference; sequence, fact/opinion, cause/effect, compare/contrast, context clues, characterization; and more.
