PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This file contains everything you need for the novel Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie. Normally, I read this with my 5th graders, but you could go a year lower as well. I have aligned the journal page questions, quiz questions, and final test questions to the common core. Usually, I give a chapter to read and assign the coordinating journal page to finish. The next day, they discuss in a discussion group, what they wrote on their journal pages. You can use these chapter journal pages as a discussion group or as a simple homework grade. Most of the time I used them as group discussions (Socratic seminars too), but occasionally I took a homework grade. When the novel was finished, they turned in all their journal pages in the foldable that you will see in this packet. There’s even an activity called Historical Note that introduces the students to the Oregon Trail. If you teach social studies, the Oregon Trail would be a great lesson that parallels to this story. The following items are contained in this file:
*Anticipation guide
*Extra credit opportunity
*Two options for a final assessment (labeled with points and standards)
*Historical note activity which is done with the pages that introduce the Oregon Trail
*13 journal pages
*Three quizzes that chunk certain entries in the novel (labeled with points and standards)
*A vocabulary packet (word list, word search, and quizzes)
*Instructions and printables for the wagon journal foldable
