Kate DiCamillo's book, Flora & Ulysses, is a crowd-pleaser. Your students will cheer for the superhero and make heartfelt connections to the main character.
In this packet, you will find comprehension pages for each chapter, vocabulary work, as well as character studies and reflection questions at the end. This 106 page packet will support your students understanding of the plot, make connections to the text, make inferences using text evidence, practice extended response style questions, express their ideas in comic formats, and much more.
Over 40 vocabulary words are selected from the novel - vocabulary work included with definition cards at the end of the packet.
I use this book as a read aloud and work through many of the pages as a group in a "guided reading" type setting. This offers opportunity for review or instruction on skills. This packet would also work as a literature circle guide or independent book study.
