Product Description

This novel unit for Ivy + Bean (Book #1 in the Ivy & Bean Series by Annie Barrows) can save hours of prep for literature circles or book clubs. Daily comprehension practice requires students to focus on text analysis and responding to literature, and the vocabulary focus builds word knowledge and academic vocabulary.

This no fluff Ivy + Bean novel study engages students, but it doesn't overwhelm your readers with countless chapter questions that just require them to regurgitate the text.

Standards-aligned & perfect for novel studies, small group book clubs or lit circles, independent reading, or as a way to monitor and teach during read alouds.

But wait...

If you are looking for the traditional novel study with the 10 daily comprehension questions, this bundle is not for you!

These aren't one-size-fits all comprehension questions. Instead, your readers will be asked to think deeper and apply their understanding of the text. They'll have the opportunity to formulate their own opinions and communicate their thinking in a way that even hesitant readers LOVE!
