What to do with those last few weeks before winter break? You need to provide a structured learning experience, but most students have ONE thing on their mind: BREAK! This activity packet supports CCSS RL. 6.7, MLS (Missouri Learning Standard) 6.RL.3.A, and can be adapted for CCSS RL. 5.7, and RL. 4.7 Students will be engaged and entertained as they work through this activity packet enjoying the funny antics of the Herdmans. Readings are chunked into student-friendly portions. Students are then required to think about their thinking after each section of reading and essentially compare how listening to and reading the literature varies their visualization of the story and understanding.
