Bundle Description
In this State Standards-aligned Literature Kit™ Set, we combine 3 of our running away novel study guides for grades 5-6.

Take a Peek Inside:

Each guide divides the novel by chapters or sections and feature reading comprehension and vocabulary questions. In every chapter, we include Before You Read and After You Read questions. The Before You Read activities prepare students for reading by setting a purpose for reading. They stimulate background knowledge and experience, and guide students to make connections between what they know and what they will learn. The After You Read activities check students' comprehension and extend their learning. Students are asked to give thoughtful consideration of the text through creative and evaluative short-answer questions and journal prompts. Also included are writing tasks, graphic organizers, comprehension quiz, test prep, word search, and crossword to further develop students' critical thinking and writing skills, and analysis of the text.

About Maniac Magee:

Maniac Magee is a Newbery Medal winning story about a young homeless boy running through town and the different people he meets along the way. Orphaned at the age of three, Jeffrey Magee runs away from his Aunt and Uncle eight years later. He finds himself in Two Mills, Pennsylvania, where he realizes the town is split in half—the East End and the West End. Running his way through the town, Magee learns of the hatred and racism that separates the two sides. Along the way, he meets a wide range of interesting characters, and even develops a legend for himself, earning him the nickname "Maniac". He endures hardships while moving from place to place, eventually finding a home in a buffalo pen at the zoo. Maniac Magee is a brave story about racism and homelessness.

About Bud, Not Buddy:

A touching and humorous story about a Ten-year-old boy on the run! Foster child Bud Caldwell, during the height of the Great Depression in 1936 leaves Flint, Michigan on a humorous adventure where he meets many interesting characters. When Bud eventually arrives in Grand Rapids, he meets Herman Calloway and all the members of the band who welcome him into their lives. As the story comes to a close, we learn that Calloway is Bud’s grandfather and Bud at last he has a place to call “home”. A captivating story told in the first person (from Bud’s point of view) this novel is an excellent read aloud. The historical setting, intriguing cast of characters, and themes of racial and societal prejudice all provide excellent opportunities for teaching, learning and discussion.

About The Great Gilly Hopkins:

A story about a bold and brazen eleven-year-old girl – and foster child – that has great expectations about life! Gilly runs away from her foster home looking for her real mother. Not finding her she begins to adjust to life with the foster family. On Thanksgiving weekend, Gilly is busy taking care of everyone as they had the flu, Gilly’s grandmother shows up.
