This independent novel study unit can be used with ANY book or novel, and covers every single one of the prescribed learning outcomes for grades 4, 5, and 6. Most of the activities in this package can be adapted for younger grades, too -- I use them all the time with my grade three students! The package begins with an overview that shows how it's possible to break your multi-talented class into four groups, or literature circles, who can each work on a book that is at their instructional reading level. This allows you time to hear all of your students read aloud every week, and to talk with them about how they're connecting to the stories they're reading. There are activities here for artistic kids, musical kids, visual kids, kinesthetic kids, verbal kids, and reflective kids. Reluctant readers will open up as they have the opportunity to choose how they want to show you what they understand from their reading. This package is my "magnum opus" -- it took me a year to create, and I hope that you enjoy using it to bring the love of reading back to your kids!
