The main focus for this author study is theme and character analysis.
Mr. Lincoln's Way is one of the books I used in my author study! Each book has a different activity for discussing theme and character traits.
I have also included...
Vocabulary cards with picture, definition and sentence in context are also included. As well as text-dependent questions and writing prompts.
I like to use these in my centers:
Word Work: Vocabulary
Work on Writing: Prompt
Buddy or Independent Center: Text-dependet questions
