I hope your students enjoy digging into Holes! I have designed this novel unit to spark the love of reading and encourage the natural flow that comes with getting lost in a good book. You won’t find any vocabulary reviews or pop quizzes, but you will find questions and activities that engage the reader and encourage higher level thinking. Questions are designed to help students keep track of the multiple story lines in Holes. Please see the preview file to see a watermarked version of the product.
Students make predictions and explore author intent. Students are introduced to the terms simile, personification, flashback, and foreshadow. Students will learn to trace the development and change of characters and support character development with textual evidence. Students also dig into character traits.
This novel study can be completed as part of a class novel study, used as a literature circle guide, or it can be used to complete an independent study. Thank you for your purchase! Please visit my store for a Holes Whole Book Test as well as a Holes Smart Board Quiz Game.
