This student study guide offers direct vocabulary instruction and CCSS aligned reading and writing activities for Elmer and the Dragon, the sequel to My Father's Dragon, by Ruth Stiles Gannett. It would be appropriate for students needing differentiated instruction and scaffolds in place to access text. Reading response activities include leveled comprehension response items that range from the basic to higher level analysis. Thinking Maps are included for several activities, offering visual representation of understanding and provide the scaffolding needed for lengthier written response. Figurative language and parts of speech are also included. Upon completion of this unit, your students are sure to know and fully understand this classic book, thoroughly, and will hopefully have a desire to read the third book in the trilogy!
