This notebook is designed to help students enjoy good literature while working on Common Core language arts standards. After a small amount of whole class time each day to discuss the previous day’s reading and go over vocabulary, the reading and notebook work can be done in partners or small groups. Students can all read at at the same time or they can do the assigned reading and follow up questions during a literacy center, as part of the Daily 5, or while you are working with another guided reading group. The questions are written in such a way to encourage close reading and deeper thinking than simple recall questions. The notebook pages can be run off back to back. A detailed answer key is included, as well as a set of suggested daily lesson plans for this novel.
