PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 63 page unit study on the text Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key, written by Jack Gantos. There is one before reading activity. Each chapter has comprehension questions, including at least two short response questions (with evidence statements sentence starters at the bottom of the page), comic strip drawings, vocabulary analysis, visualizing, or summarizing.

There are 7 extended response questions, as well.

I included a variety of character study questions and tables to utilize either during reading, or as a concluding activity. There are also 3 art connection questions and 7 journaling pages to use with any chapter. The 7 journaling pages include:
- Summarizing (Somebody Wanted But So)
- Visualizing/Predicting
- Connections
- Vocabulary
- Story Elements
- Sequence Words
- Character Traits

***With all of the optional pages, and variety of questions for each of the fifteen chapters, this novel study is easily differentiated.

I also included NYS test prep posters that we reference while reading the text including:
- Genre
- Main Idea
- Context Clues
- Text Features
- Text Structure

There is also a list of suggestions for other extension activities to go along with any novel.


***This book is both hilarious and heartwarming. It made my kids in fourth grade laugh out loud, but also have meaningful discussions about ADHD, different disabilities, and how students are treated in Special Education. It was a wonderful read aloud text.
