This download includes 15 activities related to specific chapters from the novel Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper. Most activities are linked to two chapters and can be completed during and after reading. My students loved this novel and thoroughly enjoyed these activities. Activities are aligned to the Common Core State Standards for fifth grade, but many easily align to the standards for other intermediate and middle school grade levels.
My favorite activity from this activity pack is a communication board for students to use, so they can put themselves in Melody's shoes for one class. I laminated them and had students use them to communicate and banned speaking for an entire two-hour block. They had a great time and began to really understand how Melody felt.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or feedback. I appreciate anything that you have to say. Thank you for checking out my store! I hope to upload similar activity packs in the future. Enjoy!
