~ The Case of the Marshmallow Monster is perfect for guided reading groups. The 12 page packet can easily be differentiated.
~Included in the unit:
-vocabulary for the book
-comprehension questions for each chapter
-extension project – The Marshmallow Monster Chase game
~ When I use this unit with one of my guided reading groups, the unit can last from a week to two weeks depending on how often the group meets. My guided reading groups also set their own expectations/assignments for completing their books. Sometimes students work with partner to complete assigned chapters.
~The extension project is a wonderful culminating project for the book. Students use the game board and guidelines to create their own original Marshmallow Monster Chase game.
~ The Case of the Marshmallow Monster is an AR level 2.8 book.
