This novel study book unit incorporates several different reading and writing strategies. This unit includes constructive response questions, vocabulary, context clues, inferring, making connections, and synonym and antonyms. At the end of the unit, students will be asked to write a summary of the story. I love to use this with small groups. This book is leveled at a 4.0. Lessons are aligned for grades 2 -5.
