Product Description
Teach CCSS literature standards while reading Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. Five sets of lesson plans, six PowerPoint presentations, student sheets, and rubrics help fourth and fifth grade students learn to answer explaining and inferring questions (RL.4.1 and RL.5.1), summarize and find a theme (RL.4.2 and RL.5.2), describe and compare characters (RL.4.3 and RL.5.3), as well as determine and defend point of view (RL.4.6 and RL.5.6). In addition, you’ll receive Comparing Cinderella Stories, which adds a ton of fun and addresses RL.4.9 and RL.5.9!

This Ella Enchanted unit allows you to pick and choose. That way, you can focus on the skills your students most need.

What’s Included:

Answering Questions - Teach students to construct responses to explaining and inferring questions. This set includes a 20-slide PowerPoint presentation for direct instruction and modeling, complete lesson plans, a worksheet for discriminating between explaining and inferring questions, themed question sheets, and rubrics.

Summarizing and Finding a Theme - Students summarize individual chapters, examine lessons Ella had learned, and find a theme. A chapter-by-chapter summary sheet, creative activity for finding and writing about lessons learned, theme worksheet, two PowerPoint presentations, and rubrics are included.

Describing Characters - Students describe and compare the colorful characters found in Ella Enchanted. Lesson plans, a PowerPoint presentation, list of characters to describe, character description sheet (with scaffolding), Venn diagram, and rubrics are provided. You'll also receive character cards, write-your-own chapter and draw-your-own-creature activities. Use all three, or create a differentiated experience for your gifted and talented (GATE) learners.

Point of View - Students explore first and third person, determine the point of view used in Ella Enchanted, and retell Cinderella from the perspective of a different character. To kick off the concept, students enjoy an interactive PowerPoint presentation that lets them explore point of view in popular children's books.

Comparing Cinderella Stories - Have some fun comparing Cinderella folklore and parody! Kids will enjoy reading a variety of Cinderella stories, looking for common elements, and more! (This unit is also available as a separate product.)
