This product is a 35 page printable packet to coincide with each chapter in the novel “Johnny Tremain” by Esther Forbes. It includes a full key. The printables come in a zip file with the files broken down into four sections with the appropriate keys. They are all PDF files.

The printable break down the novel into reading chunks to fit into 27 class dates. Each day has a literature based vocabulary word and activities to correspond with the reading. The activities are varied throughout the course of the novel, thus corresponding with most of the common core learning standards. Reading Strategies are varied and guided reading continues throughout the novel. The implementation of the literature based vocabulary adds to increased student reading comprehension and is offered with practice activities for each word. There are text based examples for each chapter. Literary elements are introduced and explored. There are numerous opportunities to inference and explain rationale. Visual interpretations and prediction are other skills used to master comprehension. There are also varied reading strategies to use as a class for discussion purposes.
