Jacob Have I Loved is a classic novel by Katherine Paterson, author of Bridge to Terabithia.
Jacob Have I Loved is the story of Jean Louise, twin sister to Caroline. Caroline is beautiful and talented and beloved by everyone on the small island where they live. Jean Louise feels as if she is an outsider; a secondary character in her own life. This is a story of growth and acceptance set during WWII.
I use this novel as 1 of 6 novels in a small group reading unit. This unit includes daily reading, activities, and vocabulary work. A multiple choice test with key, and a short answer test with key.
The daily work can be used as an all in folder as I use it or individual activities can be given to the whole class for group instruction.
The daily activities include figurative language, conflict, characterization, plot, summarizing skills, analysis skills, and much more.
Students enjoy this story because it is moving, the characters are relatable, and the plot is engaging.
