Lightning Thief Novel Sidekick
Turn your novel into a picture book with this chapter-by-chapter photo filled slideshow!
This Lightning Thief Novel SIDEKICK is made to be used as a visual support for your students throughout the novel. Whether you use novels as a read aloud or assign chapters for students to read independently this slideshow will work for you!
***This product contains 400 slides filled with illustrations of the setting, characters, vocabulary, figurative language, mentor sentences and background knowledge that will anchor your students’ engagement in the novel. I created this chapter-by-chapter slideshow to help my students visualize the setting, characters, and events throughout the novel.
There is a short introduction at the beginning of the slideshow. Students will get a good idea of where the story takes place and as much background as I can reveal about the main characters and plot. The slide show continues chapter by chapter. There are several slides per chapter depending on the content. There is a title slide per chapter with an illustration and page number that helps with prompting students at the beginning of a lesson. At the end of each chapter, there is a slide that contains a short answer question.
Pacing Guide and Weekly Schedule
12-15 pages per day is usually a good pace for my students. They really don’t have the stamina for much more. After I plan out my chapters for the week, then I can pick vocabulary words to focus on and create comprehensions quizzes.
Monday: Vocabulary intro
Tuesday: Short answer question using RACE strategy
Wednesday: vocabulary quiz
Thursday: Short answer question using RACE strategy
comprehension quiz on chapters for that week. (multiple choice).
