Description

Cynthia Lord's Rules 123-page Common Core Aligned Literature Guide for teaching this charming and poignant novel in grades 4-5.

SPECIAL NOTE for DISTANCE LEARNING : I have marked this product as appropriate for Distance Learning as this guide is an entire "ready-to-use," complete unit of study for Rules. This guide has everything from pre-reading activities to post-reading assessment tools, and everything in-between.

Our products are designed to require as much or as little teacher instruction or intervention as you desire. Lessons and activities are clear, and provide students with full explanation on how to complete activities (giving examples and providing mini-lessons whenever possible), requiring little to no explanation or detailed instruction from the teacher. In many cases, students will be able to self-direct their study and completion of work according to your requirements. Additionally, I have unlocked the PDF so that those who need to use parts of this Guide in Google Classroom can modify it for their needs.

PLEASE NOTE: This material is still copyright protected, and it is a violation to sell or post these materials in any publicly accessible site. You may, however post what you need for your students on a secure school site or similar, where the general public cannot access these materials. THANK YOU!

You can be assured that you are teaching the ELA Common Core Standards for grades 4-5 with this Literature Guide full of both student and teacher materials. Fully reproducible, this Guide includes worksheets, activities, handouts, quizzes, tests, and more for teaching literary analysis skills using time-tested best practices.

Jessica R. said: This novel study was one of the best we did this year. My students were engaged and really enjoyed the novel. The only problem was they kept reading ahead to see what happens. The worksheets to accompany the novel were well set up and had everything we needed for the trimester grades.
