This is a 15 page novel study unit for Roscoe Riley Rules: Never Race a Runaway Pumpkin by Katherine Applegate. This print-and-go resource provides everything you need for a complete novel study unit in which students are reading the text closely, monitoring their understanding, diving into key vocabulary, and using graphic organizers along with text evidence to deepen comprehension.
Each section in the novel study unit contains the following:
2 comprehension questions and/or personal responses (some with graphic organizers, some without)
1 key vocabulary word (meaning/definition, examples, sentence)
This novel study unit also contains a sheet for tracking story elements, a final comprehension question requiring the reader to consider the novel as a whole, and a personal response sheet.
