This guide was updated and expanded in May of 2017.
This is a two-week literature study for the book titled Mama's Bank Account, by Kathryn Forbes. This book contains the delightful adventures of the "mama" of an immigrant Norwegian family living in San Francisco.
A mini-guide contains 10 sections that feature vocabulary exercises, discussion questions, literature analyses, life application/Bible connections, and an 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 the 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 Middlers: Mama's Bank Account Reproducibles
a) When you purchase one set of reproducibles, you have permission to make a copy for each of your students.
b) An Answer Key is not provided for the reproducibles; the answers for the activities on the sheets are found at the end of the mini-guide.
2) Workbook format (space is provided for students to write the answers to the questions and to complete the activities):
Mini-Guide for Middlers: Mama's Bank Account Workbook
a) The content of the guide in interactive format and in workbook format is the same; the only difference is spacing.
b) If you purchase the guide in workbook format, you do not need the reproducibles.
Mini-guides were originally designed for homeschoolers; teachers and parents also use them in schools and co-ops. For more information about Mini-Guides, check the mini-guide page of the CNS website:
