This is a comprehensive book group packet based on the novel Poppy, by Avi. It features guiding questions for students to complete either independently or with teacher support and discuss during guided reading lessons as well as extension activities at the end of the packet.
The novel unit has a page of questions for each chapter, which can be done as a whole group or independently.
Questions cover a variety of topics, such as theme, figurative language, symbolism, character motivation, vocabulary building, and much much more. It mixes questions that vary in levels of Bloom's Taxonomy and ask students to really think about their reading.
The beauty of this packet is that as a soft copy you will be able to adjust for different levels and add to or take away from the packet as much as you'd like. Vocabulary questions might have to be adjusted to make the page numbers fit the specific books you are using.
This is a fabulous and engaging book with great opportunities for extension. It would work well as a middle or end of 3rd grade, 4th grade, or lower 5th or 6th grade study.
