This literature study is for The Long Winter, by Laura Ingalls Wilder for 4th grade and is Common Core aligned. This is a lit study journal that you may edit and change to suit your taste and concepts you are teaching.
There is a cover page that the students design. The two journal pages include vocabulary, story sequencing, character traits, drawing conclusions, story climax, predicting, etc. and are meant to be copied multiple times to create a 33 page (double-sided) journal for each student. A complete journal will need to be printed for each student.
My students loved this unit and the end results of their journals were something they would want to keep.
