Product Description
This book, written by Julius Lester, really is a gold mine for literature teachers. It has it all! There is all sorts of figurative language, colloquial language/voice, inferring, compare/contrasting, cause and effect, vocabulary, sentence variety, vivid verbs, transitions, show/not tell, transitions, and theme! You'll find sources, ideas, or examples of all that in this installment of my Literature Lessons Series!

I've made two separate files in a zipfile format. One is the student pages and answer keys with the vocabulary quizzes. The other is for teachers with as many of the skills and examples that I could find.
This product is meant to be flexible for you, so you can pick and choose and revisit as you go. I will do some of these activities with students after the initial reading, they will do some of the vocabulary and figurative language work in centers. Then, when I teach new skills (for example, if I teach inferring in a month from the first read), I will have them revisit snippets of the text for a close read and use more of the activities. Basically, by the end of the year, they will have revisited John Henry a lot!
