This is based on the MTH book Hurry Up Houdini by Mary Pope Osborne. There is a common core activity to go along with each chapter including Text-based questions, Setting, Problem/Solution, Sequencing, Main idea and details, and cause and effect.
You can use this for a whole group read-aloud, in small groups, literature circles or independent work.
A rubric is included with the Common Core Standards and student and teacher rating.
There is a fun companion to this book that has a lot of magic tricks in it. My students couldn't wait for "Houdini Time" each day when we read a chapter in the book and did a magic trick. Fun!
