Every classroom needs a little Judy Blume! With this 2-pack, you get reading response units for both Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing AND Freckle Juice!
Reach more students:
Students in your class (working at two different reading levels) can read a Judy Blume book at their just-right level while working on reading responses that cover similar comprehension strategies and reading skills!
Included in these units are a variety of Common Core aligned reading responses for every chapter of both books. These responses check students' understanding, as well as provide them a focus for reading. Students are required to look back in the story to support their thinking with evidence.
Strategy pages are included so that students can make connections, predict, and ask questions as they read.
CCSS-alignment pages for each book help the teacher track what students are working on each day. A complete answer key rounds out the unit, keeping it as simple as possible for the teacher!
