As you read the book for novel study, construct a lap book with your students to help them learn new reading skills in a fun way. Common Core aligned skills include:
-Compare and contrast literary elements and mediums
-Accurately quote text to support an inference
-Identify metaphors and similes
There are two informational writing prompts at then end and a book review set in a newspaper template.
I haven't included photos of the lap book, but I will as soon as I bring my example home from work.
