These are resources created to accompany the reading of Hound Dog True by Linda Urban. Within in the zip file are several documents. These resources have been designed to accompany this novel study as part of the 5th Grade Journeys curriculum. However, these resources can also be used independently of this curriculum.
I have included three vocabulary files with this unit. In one file, I created vocabulary worksheets for the three weeks that we read the novel. Each week has a worksheet with a set of vocabulary words and space to write the definitions. In another file, I created vocabulary "cards". These can be used in a few different ways. I print them out and give them to students in small groups. Each card has a vocabulary word, definition, and discussion question. I have the students discuss the word and the discussion questions in small groups. In another file is a matching vocabulary test on all of the words from the unit.
I have included two spelling files. The first file is simply a typed list of spelling words from the unit. I pulled these words from the vocabulary words. I print this list out and give it to students to study from. The second file is a spelling activity where they have three versions of each spelling word and they have to circle the correct spelling for each word.
Finally, I have included a unit test over Hound Dog True. This unit test has 38 questions. It has short answer, matching, true/false, and essay sections.
