One of my favorite parts of a school day is the time I get to interact with my intermediate and middle school students.
Read-aloud time is a time when we gather together as a community, and my kids LOVE to read novels with me. I've created novel studies for my kids, and now I am bringing them to you!
Teaching is time consuming, so I have created FOURTEEN NO PREP
novel study resources to make your planning easier! These units are truly print-and-go ready
, and they will last you the entire school year.
▶️ Save money when you purchase this bundle! These resources sell for $10/each, but this bundle comes with a 25% discount
!! That's like getting three novel studies for free!
The units included in this bundle were designed with you, the teacher, in mind. These novel studies will allow your students to access this novel in a deep and meaningful way. At the same time, this resource will save you time and energy. You’ll be able to spend more time connecting with this story along with
Included in each novel's resource are comprehension questions and read aloud questions
for each chapter. These questions range from DOK Levels 1-4, which allow your students to process explicit and inferential details at a range of difficulty
. These questions were written and designed to meet standards for Common Core RL.1 through RL.6, as well as RL.10.
Inside of every novel study, you'll find enrichment activities that move the students into other content areas and real-world application skills
. Social studies, science, social justice, growth mindset, and other similar topics are tied in throughout the year!
