A comprehensive novel guide and unit on Matilda. Aligned with common core in language, reading literature, and writing. Includes questions or activities for each chapter. I also cover introductions to figurative language and include assessment. Any of the question sheets could easily be switched to a test or quiz.There is an activity that is scripted and students get the opportunity to act out a scene and compare and contrast reading and viewing a scene. Finally, inferencing, cause and effect, and question generating are covered. The students receive a well-rounded reading experience that supports critical thinking. Enjoy!
