Cover for student folder is included. These reader response pages provide many opportunities for thinking and writing about the text.

*** Spin-Off Lesson*** is a perfect way to engage students in literacy activity. A

spin-off lesson is included in this teaching resource about the song “High Hopes” by Frank Sinatra. This great song is on youtube and it is an excellent springboard for a class discussion on having goals, not giving up and achieving. Students start to see the life lessons in literature when you dig a bit deeper into the text. This “spin-off lesson” is engaging and fun; there are several pages of writing prompts to help with discovering the author’s message in the first chapter. Enjoying literature in this way teaches young readers to read and write with conviction. Answer sheets Included
