PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an interactive file folder WITH matching anchor charts focusing on the novel Pax by Sara Pennypacker. This unit focuses on strong comprehension strategies paired with writing in an engaging interactive notebook with mini-books for referencing ideas and prompts.

Focus areas include character change, author's language and the four types of conflict.

Put together the entire interactive notebook with students before you start reading. Each pocket has mini books that contain the same information as the large anchor charts. This way, students can reference ideas as they read.

I would introduce and MODEL my thoughts using the I.C.E. strategy as noted in the anchor chart under sentence frames. Students practice in partners and then individually.

Order of introduction: (Introduce all three areas to notice by the time 1/3 of the book is read.
Sentence frames and Author’s Language
Types of Conflict
Characters Grow & Change

Allow students to share their ideas in small groups as you read this novel.

The first page of “What Did You Notice Today” is for students to copy your “exemplar” model. I would run off 6 additional pages for students to use for writing their responses. Model each area to notice by modeling “exemplar” writing as much as possible. Writing should not be required every day because you want extended READING to happen first.

The back cover is where kids write about Peter’s “truth” and what he learned through his experience.

You will absolutely love this book!
