Pax is the heart wrenching story of Peter and Pax, his pet fox. When his father forces Peter to leave Pax in the woods and go live with his grandfather, Peter is determined to find his fox.
This is 161 pages of student pages for use with the novel Pax by Sara Pennypacker. Each of the 34 chapters has at least 2 comprehension questions, many have more than that to allow for easy differentiation. At the bottom of each page are suggestions for evidence statements for students to use to start their sentences while citing the text.
There are question pages WITHOUT the border, as well.
There are multiple types of writing paper, including some with self reflection rubrics at the bottom. In addition, there are 19 comprehension activities that can be used with any text and any chapter. These include skills like summarizing, analyzing quotes, letter writing, and more. I have also included 6 after reading prompts for practicing extended responses and test prep poster pages. (genres, text structure, context clues, and text features)
There is a list of additional book activities.
I also included three types of mini journals to be printed double sided, flip on the short side. You can pick and choose the pages that go into the comprehension journal (plenty of questions students can answer while reading this text), vocabulary journal, and character study journal. Adapt to fit the needs of individual students.
There are so many ways to differentiate this text! I loved using it as a read aloud for my class. As a read aloud, you can still differentiate by giving individual students their own questions, depending on the skills they need to practice. It can also be used for novel studies independently or in guided reading groups.
