PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Included in this packet are the following based on the story Jumani by Chris Van Allsburg

*10 comprehension task cards based on the story
*Graphic Organizers on summary, author's purpose, sequencing, and cause and effect.
*4 interactive notebook pages to deepen student understanding.

There is also an interactive notebook page focusing in on multiple vocabulary words from the story.

This is a great story to use as a read aloud for your students...I think this goes without saying. :) The activities in this packet can be used as a week long study of the book, or just as a supplement to your current reading program.

Summary of story:
When Peter and Judy's parents head to the opera and leave the children to their own devices for the afternoon, the children's excitement quickly turns to boredom. This changes when they find what appears to be an ordinary board game labeled "Jumanji" sitting under a tree in the park. A note taped to the box warns them to read the instructions. Mildly curious, the children take the game home. When they halfheartedly begin to play, it becomes immediately apparent that they are dealing with a very unusual game!

With each roll of the dice, the events described by the game board begin to materialize around them. As the game progresses, their quiet home is transformed by a hungry lion, a band of mischievous monkeys, a befuddled guide, a monsoon, a rhinoceros stampede, and a giant python draped across the mantelpiece. Just as the children begin to lose hope that their home will ever be quiet again, Judy wins the game by landing on the square representing the golden city of Jumanji. In an instant, the house is exactly as it was before they began playing. Peter and Judy run back to the park, deposit the game under the tree where they found it, and are fast asleep when their parents return. Later that evening, they look out the window and see Danny and Walter Budwing, two children not known for reading instructions, carrying the box out of the park toward their home.

Thanks for looking!
