I am such a fan of this series. I LOVE how Mary Pope Osborn is able to engage even the most reluctant readers in a magic world where students are learning history, science, technology, among all the literary elements that can be incorporated into the series.
I have created many different MTH products but I have to admit, I have found that there are groups that I just don't have the TIME to do a chapter by chapter packet.
My class this year has inspired me to be VERY creative in my attempts to keep their attention so I wanted to use the series but in a completely different way. This is an interactive notebook approach to the first book in the series. It focuses on many different features which are interactive and engaging. The students are going back in the text and looking for key details but they can use this in a notebook instead of the worksheet format. My students ADORE these interactive notebooks and I think your kiddos will too!
