Download my standards-based mini-books that can be used with any piece of literature. Students can use these in their interactive notebooks, reading journals, or kept separate for review activities. Size of pages is approximately 6.2 inches x 5 inches (but teachers can resize when printing for larger/smaller dimensions).
Students will practice the following skills:
• Identifying and explaining themes from the reading.
• Describing how a theme develops through the characters, setting, and plot (events).
• Summarizing a chapter or story.
The book has two options: One with standards-based questions and one that is blank that can be filled in with your own questions or used for notes.
The skills practiced are aligned to the Common Core State Standards (but can be used with any state/country standards). Specific alignment for each grade level is provided.
