Included in this Flat Stanley Worldwide Adventures #5: The Amazing Mexican Secret novel study are Common Core aligned reading responses and comprehension activities for every chapter. These responses check students' understanding, as well as provide them a focus for reading.
Also included are vocabulary words for each chapter. Students will use the dictionary to define words and apply their learning through sentence writing, drawing, and matching words to their definitions.
All students must have access to the book, as students are required to look back in the story to support their thinking with evidence.
Strategy pages are included so that students can make connections, predict, and ask questions as they read.
A CCSS-alignment page helps the teacher track what students' are working on each day. A complete answer key rounds out the unit, keeping it as simple as possible for the teacher!
