Product Description

This complete and engaging literacy unit for Louisiana's Way Home by Kate DiCamillo will save YOU time and engage your students in a meaningful reading experience. Reading responses, graphic organizers, comprehension questions, vocabulary, writing about reading, character study, story elements, and "before, during and after" questions for understanding the story are included in this resource.

These writing prompts and graphic organizers

• will enable readers to make connections to their reading

• will support reading strategies taught

• will improve reading comprehension

• will engage students in literature in a meaningful way

43 pages of Reading Response Graphic Organizers and Writing Prompts Include:

  • comprehension checks
  • character traits
  • character's actions and words
  • adjectives to describe the characters
  • the beginning - setting
  • vocabulary words [chapter by chapter]
  • compare and contrast
  • symbolism
  • making predictions
  • make an inference
  • summarize the story
  • ‘make a cover’ for your Louisiana's Way Home folder
  • teacher guidelines for chapters [3 groups]

This book is a wonderful book teaching the theme of self-esteem and identity. Kate DiCamillo is a masterful writer and a Newbery medalist. She writes realistic fiction in a way that touches your heart. She develops characters in a way that we can relate to their feelings, trials and successes. She captures the children's minds and hearts on page 1. You will be able to use these pages if you decide to do a read aloud with the book; or if you assign the book for independent reading. These reader response pages are appropriate for grades 2-4. Of course, 4th graders writing would be more sophisticated and they would be able to develop higher level meanings on theme, comprehension, summary, vocabulary etc. These writing pages would also help homeschoolers to learn comprehension strategies, word study and listening skills.
