'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone' has been a favorite for almost all of my students and I have seen many become great readers because of 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone!' This 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Novel Unit' is aligned with Common Core and Virginia Standards of Learning. This unit makes planning to read 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone,' the first book in the Harry Potter series, much easier and faster! The unit includes:

Each chapter features different methods of assessing vocabulary skills including matching the word to definition, figuring out the part of speech, using context clues to create their own definition, and rewriting words into new sentences. An answer key is provided to help with grading or to allow students to self assess if used as a center.

Comprehension questions also incorporate Common Core and Virginia Standards of Learning skills such as inferences, compare and contrast, character, plot, summarizing, context clues, cause and effect, main idea, and supporting details. An answer key is provided to help with grading or to allow students to self assess if used as a center.
