Freckle Juice is such a fun book by author Judy Blume. Although it is a short text, there are a lot of good reading skills that can be pulled out of it! And the students love reading it as well, especially when Andrew draws blue freckles on his face! I created this guided reading packet to use with my small group.
Included in this pack:
Common Core State Standards that are covered in this unit.
-Anchor Charts: There is an anchor chart for each skill and strategy that is used in this unit. They include: predicting, visualizing, character traits with words and actions, character relationships, cause and effect, questioning, connections, summary with beginning, middle, end and story elements.
-Before Reading Activity – Predicting and background knowledge
I then split this text up into 5 chapters.
Each chapter has the following:
-Ready to Read- Intro to the section and what skill is being focused on during group.
-Vocabulary word cards and activity
-Oral discussion questions
-Reading Response sheet specific to the skill for the chapter
4 Cumulative activities
-Freckle Juice Advertisement
-Letter to Sharon from Andrew
-Write a summary
-Write the next chapter
I hope you and your students get a lot of use out of this packet!
