Utterly engaging, Hokey Pokey is the latest book from Jerry Spinelli. The book means many different things to different people. I believe it is
an allegory about childhood and growing up. Whatever it's about - it's fantastic! This novel will challenge your students to use their imagination.
My study guide contains questions for every chapter, vocabulary with page numbers, comprehension skills such as drawing conclusions, making inferences, fact and opinion, determining cause and effect, characterization, analyzing text, and comparing and contrasting. There are many thought-provoking questions which can lead to lively class discussions. There is an emphasis on character development and adjectives. There are many opportunities to write from a character's point of view and also from their own personal experiences. I believe if you begin the school year with this book, the students will love reading right from the start.
