I love the Poppy series of books written by Avi and so do my 3rd graders! They are a wonderful group of characters, each unique in their own way. This literacy packet is based on the book Poppy. Poppy is a brave mouse and she saves the day for her family as she faces off against Mr. Ocax, a mean old owl.
This packet could be used with the whole class, literature groups, or individuals.
This literacy packet has the following types of pages to reinforce comprehension:
Theme of the Story
Lesson of the Story
Questioning: Before, During and After Reading
Main Idea & Details
Identifying Character Traits
What Would You Do?: Moral Dilemma Questions
There are 32 pages in all in this PDF file including the cover page and a credit page. Download the preview file to see full pages including the table of contents so that you can be sure about the quality before buying,
Answer keys are included as needed, but many of the activities are open ended. You don’t need to use the whole packet each time; pick and choose as you go!
This packet was created for 3rd - 4th graders, but may be appropriate for some 2nd and 5th graders. This would work well with homeschoolers too!
