Who doesn't love a good deal? Buy two ready-to-use novel studies in one purchase at significant savings! This packet contains novel studies (also for sale separately) for Three Times Lucky (2013 Newbery Award Winner) and The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing created by Jean Martin.
The novel studies are designed for students in grades 5-8 and include student booklets, answer keys, student bookmarks, vocabulary lists for challenging words that appear in each assignment, and a listing of common core standards supported in each packet.
The student booklets divide the texts into seven assignments for each book and include activities that reinforce skills including:
interpreting/recognizing figurative language
creating a summary
providing evidence from the text
understanding unusual expressions
compare and contrast characters
To read more details about these two novel studies go to Three Times Lucky
and/or The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing
The novel studies I create are intended to make the student's reading experience richer and the teacher's life easier. They can be copied (duplexed or single sided) and stapled along the side to make a workbook and then put to use that very same day! I design them to support the text and to support Common Core Standards. They can be given to a parent or aide to direct a book club or literature circle or discussion group. They can be used as class work or as homework. They can be used to assess student understanding. I hope you will find them as helpful and all-encompassing as I have!

P.S. After creating this product, Sheila Turnage published another book in the sequel (2015); it is titled, The Odds of Getting Even. I have a novel study for this newest book as well which you can find by clicking on the title.
