It is difficult to find reading guides for all of the books that you would like your students to read during Guided Reading, Small group reading, etc. Wouldn't it be nice if you had a general reading guide that helped your students to stay focused and engaged in the text without getting too distracted or overwhelmed?
This Reading Packet is designed to scaffold student note taking while helping them to recognize plot structure, vocabulary, dictionary skills, use of context clues and predicting, summary writing, writing discussion questions, and even following specific directions. This packet follows along well with the 6th grade Core, but can be applied and adapted for use in upper grades.
Recommended project duration: 15 days to finish a text
Recommended as a group project where students have their own packet to complete, but work as a team to read the novel.
Can be sent home as homework, if that is the way your classroom is set up.
