Bundle Description

Save MONEY and TIME with this BUNDLED resource!

These two resources center on the beautiful novel, FRONT DESK by Kelly Yang. This is a perfect bundle, as you will get an INTERACTIVE MINI-BOOK to teach CHARACTER TRAITS as well as a STUDENT VOCABULARY NOTEBOOK to reinforce key words essential to the text.

The Common Core-aligned INTERACTIVE CHARACTER TRAITS MINI-BOOK asks students to go deeper into understanding seven of the characters in the novel: Mia; Mia’s Mom; Mia’s Dad; Jason; Mr. Yao; Lupe; and Hank.

Students analyze each character, choose three traits to describe him/her, and provide text evidence to support each trait. A “Character Traits” list is included for student reference.

The final page of the mini-book is a post-reading essay. Here, students choose either Mia or Jason and explain what that character learned about him/herself over the course of the novel.

WHAT YOU GET WITH THE INTERACTIVE CHARACTER TRAITS MINI-BOOK:

• a 9-page character trait analysis interactive mini-book, complete with a list of character traits for student support

• a choice of two interactive mini-book covers: color and printer-friendly black & white

• a “How to Use the Mini-Book” tip sheet

• a Common Core-alignment page

• a how-to page for assembling the mini-book

To complete the STUDENT VOCABULARY NOTEBOOK, students read the excerpt from the text and use context clues (or a dictionary) to determine “What It Is” and “What It Is Not.” They then create a drawing depicting the meaning of the word. A 2-page quiz is included to assess students' knowledge of the 20 terms.
