PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit on the book, The Bears on Hemlock Mountain, is suitable for highly able or gifted readers in grades JK-1. First, students complete a pre-reading activity and learn the new vocabulary. Next, they read, answer chapter questions, write a courage verse, create a food poem and learn about onomatopoeia. The work requires thinking and responding at Bloom’s higher levels (evaluation, synthesis and evaluation). The questions focus on plot, character analysis, and theme. After the students finish reading the novel, an extension activity involves researching an animal from the story and creating a Mystery Animal Flip-Book. They share these products with their book group and class. The text is at a guided reading Level M (490 lexile or about 3.5 grade level). The unit is designed to support a book discussion format where the children read two chapters and then there is a discussion. It is also suitable as an independent unit.
