This is a two-week literature guide for the book Lumber Camp Library, by Natalie Kinsey-Warnock. In this book, 10-year-old Ruby wants to be a lumberjack like her pa. But when her ma insists she go to school, Ruby discovers a wonderful new world: reading and books. The book is set in the 1920s in Vermont.
Note: Most mini-guides for juniors are designed for 4th-6th graders; this book was written for 7-10 year olds, so the mini-guide is designed for 2nd-5th graders.
This mini-guide contains ten sections that include vocabulary exercises, discussion questions, reading activities, life application/Bible connections, and a complete answer key.
This is an interactive guide that enables parents/teachers to facilitate an oral discussion of the book, but it only provides space for one student to complete fill-in-the-blank activities. If you are interested in using the guide with more than one student, check out the options:
1) Reproducibles -- they contain all of the fill-in-the-blank activities:
Mini-Guide for Juniors: Lumber Camp Library Reproducibles
2) Workbook format -- in this format students have room to write answers (if you purchase the guide in this format, you do not need to purchase the reproducibles):
Mini-Guide for Juniors: Lumber Camp Library Workbook
The content of the Interactive guide and the Workbook guide are the same.
Mini-guides are designed for homeschoolers, but are also used in schools and co-ops. For more information about Mini-Guides, check the mini-guide page of the CNS website:
