Great Value! This reading lesson contains TWO (2) DIFFERENT complete guided reading worksheets. The first worksheet is 51 questions (with answer key) and the second worksheet contains 52 questions (with answer key) for a selection from The Acorn People by Ron Jones. Questions consist of True and False, multiple choice, fill in the blank and short answer. Answer keys included!
NOTE: These are TWO DIFFERENT close reading worksheets - perfect for those classes that have "cheaters"... give one row of students worksheet #1, and give the next row of students worksheet #2... or give one class #1, and another class #2... mix it up however you wish.
This worksheet is for the selection of The Acorn People - an account by Ron Jones. This is NOT a lesson for the full story... just a selection found in middle school literature text books.
PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE PREVIEW TO SEE THE FIRST 5 QUESTIONS FROM BOTH WORKSHEETS!!
It will take about 70 minutes for the students to complete the 51 or 52 question worksheet (depending on the student).
This is a short story about a young man who is a camp counselor for children with disabilities. He didnt think they were "very disabled"... he thought they could enjoy the outdoors, hiking, swimming and boating at the camp. He is very surprised at just how severely disabled they are. How does he deal with it? Does he quit? This is a very heart warming story for students to read in class. Kids really like this story.
This is a very thorough worksheet that guides the students through the story. The questions are presented to the students in chronological order. Middle school students seem to like this story. TEACHERS will LOVE this worksheet as it keeps students of all levels on task.
These 51-52 question worksheets are designed with cost effective photocopying in mind. This is a one page worksheet - front and back. NO STAPLES

As a public school English teacher, the biggest challenge I have is getting students to read in class or at home. Put a book or short story in front of them, they'll look at it for a few seconds and start day dreaming... THEY DON'T FOCUS!
Until I stumbled upon something magnificent. Teenagers like accomplishment. These worksheets ask questions while the reader reads. Every couple of sentences, there's another question in true or false, fill in the blank, define, multiple choice formats. As the student reads, boom, another question. They answer it and continue reading. Before you know it, they have finished reading the story and completed all questions for further lessons/discussions.
These worksheets are great for daily lessons, test/quiz grades, extra credit, homework, group work (in pairs of two), substitute teacher lessons, emergency lesson plans, great for ESOL or however you can imagine.
