Product Description
We use this with our fourth graders for part of our Historical Fiction unit. This consists of 6 pages. 1 page is included for each of the 4 books we read; Leah's Pony by Elizabeth Friedrich, Baseball Saved Us by Ken Mochizuki, A Place Called Freedom by Scott Russell Sanders, and The Hatmaker's Sign by Candace Fleming, with questions over each. Each of these books is simple to read with very good historical information and great possibilities for more in depth analysis. The kids always enjoy reading them and we do too. All 4 are AR books worth 0.5 points with a reading level between 3.3 and 3.9. We are incorporating Common Core along with our PASS objectives, so these touch on a few of these. There are at least 1 or 2 simple/basic questions covering the following Common Core Standards: Synonyms (L.4.5c), Sequencing/Chronology (RI.4.5), Cause/Effect (RI.4.3/RI.4.5), Setting (RL.4.3), Simile (L.4.5a). We have also included a Literary Elements blank story map covering Title of Book, Characters (RL.4.3), Setting (RL.4.3), Point of View (RL.4.6), Conflict/Problem (RI.4.5), Resolution/Solution (RI.4.5), Plot/Events (RL.4.3), and Theme (RL.4.2). A Wordsearch is also included. Our kids are getting very good at identifying and writing very short descriptions - they even seem to enjoy it. Usually we do some of the questions together as a class, sometimes individually, and often with partners or small groups. They enjoy small groups - even more since we bought them each their own clipboard. They really like to go get their clipboards and work with their partners in various places in the room - it's really cute the way they look forward to it. The clipboards are also great when they leave their desks and work with partners in Math, Social Studies, etc. We purchased them for about $1.40 each at Wal-Mart. Hope this is helpful for you and your kids. Have a great year!!!
