Old Yeller by Fred Gipson is a classic novel that I have used in small reading group settings. I developed this packet of information to give my literature circle some structure and to work on reading comprehension, vocabulary development, and to allow some writing practice.
In this packet you will find:
10 pages of printable text
16 chapters with questions provided for those chapters as well as targeted vocabulary
Character comparison with Venn Diagram and an area to write about similarities and differences.
A page for your students to write an alternate ending to the story or leave it as a cliff-hanger.
An opportunity to write a letter to a character to share a personal experience.
