This download should be used with my free: Plot Diagram and Elements Graphic Organizer which is separate on my TpT store. Below is what you will receive. This is a ready to use literature unit of Avi’s 2015 Old Wolf. I have set up the unit to be easily used by classroom teachers as well as substitute/guest teachers. Due to the short chapters, it is the perfect text for learners to practice writing summaries. If you’ve not yet tried a book by Avi, try Old Wolf!

This organizer can be used by learners while reading narrative texts, or while planning their own narrative story.
Teacher Copy includes:
Section Summaries, Vocabulary, Vocabulary Definitions, Completed Vocabulary Chart with Definitions; Blank Vocabulary Chart with words per chapter; Blank Vocabulary Chart; Questions and Suggested Answers to Questions; Plot Information; Related Common Core Standards
**Vocabulary options: learners find unfamiliar words to define; learners use Frayer Vocabulary templates to study words; learners are given a chart of words to define while reading; learners are given a chart of words with definitions to refer to while reading.
**Some Questions are based on Fountas and Pinnell Level T Guided Reading Comprehension Questions.
**Note: Answers are given to help the teacher guide the discussion - especially if the teacher has not had time to read the text. Allow students to discuss their answers, probing for evidence from the text. A few questions do not include an answer, as the answers are interpretations of the text.
If you are working with a younger, first-semester third-grade group, this unit will best be led by a teacher. If the readers are in the second semester of third grade or higher, this unit could be used in a small group setting, or by independent readers. Research has shown that comprehension is improved when readers discuss the text with the guidance of a teacher. In addition, readers gain comprehension of the text when responding to the text in writing and then discussing the text. Keep in mind, during independent reading time, learners should be reading text for more of the time period than responding to the text.
