If you've never read Ruth Stiles Gannett, it is a MUST read for any elementary classroom!
My 2nd graders always LOVE the story of a young boy on a quest through a crazy land to rescue a dragon. This 38 page unit includes activities to extend the story when it is finished.
There are 8 activities included...
*vocab cards to help introduce words
*Elemer Elevator's Backpack predicting and/or inferencing activity
*Newspaper article writing
*Diary entry writing and/or activity with diary entries and differing view points
*Character Traits activity
*Designing a map
*Story elements chart
*Message from the Mouse activity
This would be great for a 2nd/3rd grade classroom and could probably go as high as 4th grade and would be super for using during guided reading groups or whole class!
