Description

James and the Giant Peach 113-page Literature Guide for Roald Dahl's classic contains ready-to-go worksheets, activities, quizzes, tests, and more aligned with the Common Core State Standards for ELA in Reading as well as the NCTE/IRA National ELA Content Standards in English for 3rd and 4th grades.

SPECIAL NOTE for DISTANCE LEARNING : I have marked this product as appropriate for Distance Learning as this guide is an entire "ready-to-use," complete unit of study for James and the Giant Peach. This guide has everything from pre-reading activities to post-reading assessment tools, and everything in-between.

Our products are designed to require as much or as little teacher instruction or intervention as you desire. Lessons and activities are clear, and provide students with full explanation on how to complete activities (giving examples and providing mini-lessons whenever possible), requiring little to no explanation or detailed instruction from the teacher. In many cases, students will be able to self-direct their study and completion of work according to your requirements. Additionally, I have unlocked the PDF so that those who need to use parts of this Guide in Google Classroom can modify it for their needs.

PLEASE NOTE: This material is still copyright protected, and it is a violation to sell or post these materials in any publicly accessible site. You may, however post what you need for your students on a secure school site or similar, where the general public cannot access these materials. THANK YOU!
