Use the prediction and word highlight activities included in this activity packet before reading Jake Drake Know It All by Andrew Clements. Students connect with, and gain interest in, the story through the prediction activity. They can then become familiar with words from each chapter that they may not know how to pronounce, as well as their meanings, through the diction activities.
This introductory activity is a wonderful complement to the printable literature guide that can also be found at my T-P-T store.
Students will get excited about this story involving a science fair, electromagnets, and that staying true to your friends is important.
