Product Description
Ruby Holler Text Messaging Comprehension Activity
Common Core Reading Standards: 2,3,5,6

This is a 5-page reading comprehension activity that will work with any novel but is set up for the novel Ruby Holler by the Newbery award winning author Sharon Creech. This activity will have your students send "text" messages to the author, a character in the story, a friend about a favorite part, and a teacher about what he/she liked about the story. I have found this to be a very enjoyable activity that encourages comprehension of the story.

The book, Ruby Holler, is a delightful book about a beautiful, mysterious place where one may discover that it's never too late to be loved and hope is always nearby. Ruby Holler will take you on a journey of Dallas and Florida, and their experiences with being orphans. Mr. and Mrs. Trepid operate the Boxton Creek Home for Children, but will Dallas and Florida stay there? Or will their dreams take them to special place? Dallas and Florida have been shuffled between foster families and orphanages all their lives, longing only for a loving place to call home. Ruby Holler seems to change lives forever.

Included in the packet is a template cell phone for each activity, along with over 30 text abbreviations for the students to use (but we are sure that your students know many, many more!).
