PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This book study integrates reading/language arts skills, strategies, and practice for the comprehension of informational text with the study of a science curriculum unit on WEATHER. Patricia Lauber's book is rich in figurative language and graphic organizers for interpretive practice.

The book study was originally used by grade 5 Academically Gifted students in a guided reading approach; and is appropriate for grades 5, 6, and homeschoolers. The book study has two parts: 1. Teacher Lesson Suggestions for each page of the book, and 2. a non-consumable student booklet with DISCUSSION QUESTIONS, ACTIVITIES, and CHAPTER TESTS (aligned with Common Core Standards ELA.LITERACY.RI.5/6). An INTRODUCTION details the contents and use of the unit.

Targeted reading/language arts strategies and skills for understanding, application and practice are: Figures of Speech, Drawing Conclusions, Inference, Author's Purpose, Main idea/Topic Sentence/Supporting Details, Context Clues for Meaning, Note-taking/Outlines and Graphic Organizers (interpretation and use). The ACTIVITIES are on-going and self-paced for portfolio presentation upon the completion of the unit, for an individual project board, or for a group interactive bulletin board display on HURRICANES/WEATHER.

The book study and other novel study units found in Jan Z's Study Units on TpT.
