This complete 8 page Language to Literacy activity goes along with the children's classic novel Ralph S. Mouse by Beverly Cleary.
I made copies for each of my students and had them glue onto construction paper. After reading the chapters as indicated on the chart we completed vocabulary, connections, observations, wanderings, summaries, and cause and effect.
I assisted the kids heavily with the first few days then allowed them to do the last few chapters independently so that I could get decent grades from their summaries and cause and effect.
I think the handouts are pretty self explanatory but if you have any questions about how to use this packet please don't hesitate to ask! Hope you find this product useful in your classroom.
