This is a mini-guide (a two-week literature study) for the book titled Words by Heart, by Ouida Sebestyn. In this book, Lena memorizes many Bible verses for a contest; she must then decide whether or not she will follow these "words" that the learned "by heart".
The mini-guide contains vocabulary exercises, discussion questions, reading activities, life application/Bible connections, and an answer key.
This interactive guide enables parents/teachers to facilitate an oral discussion of this 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 following options:
1) Reproducibles (contain all of the fill-in-the-blank activities -- when you purchase one set of reproducible sheets, you have permission to make a copy for each of your students):
Mini-Guide for Middlers: Words by Heart Reproducibles
2) The guide is also available in a workbook format; in this format there is space for students to write all of the answers:
Mini-Guide for Middlers: Words by Heart Workbook
If you purchase the workbook, you do not need the reproducibles because all of the fill-in-the-blank activities are included in the workbook.
NOTE: The content in the interactive guide and the workbook guide is the same; the only difference is in the spacing.
This is a guide for Middlers (6th-9th), but it may also be used with Seniors (10th-12th).
Mini-guides were originally 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:
