This 35 page packet is designed for teachers to use with students in grades 3-7 as they read Esperanza Rising. There is a 15 page student packet (cover page and one page for each chapter). Each page includes key vocabulary for the chapter, higher level comprehension questions, and an extension activity. I have kept each chapter to a single page to cut down on the number of pages you have to copy, but have worked extremely hard to jam pack each page with quality activities that are common core aligned.
Some topics covered through the vocabulary sections and extension activities include:
-Parts of Speech
-Synonyms and Antonyms
-Cause and Effect
-Main Idea and Summarizing
-Visualization and Descriptive Language
And Much More!
This packet also includes a final project menu and accompanying worksheets for students to extend their thinking after completing the novel. Also included are teacher resources to make your implementation of this unit even easier.
I hope that you enjoy this novel study. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments feel free to contact me.
