Use this packet to check for comprehension with a guided reading group or literature circle. Includes an answer guide with both "right there" answers and inferred answers to enrich the discussions. The packet ends with a vocabulary page that you may want to begin the discussion with in order to build background knowledge prior to reading. A choice of writing activities is used for closure. Meant to be partnered with the book by Margaret K. Wetterer. I have used it where two students read this book and two read a non-fiction account of the story, so we could compare and contrast the texts and how the comprehension could vary even thought the topic was very similar.
