Product Description
Shiloh is one of my favorite books to teach, and this unit represents 4 years worth of classroom use and improvements in fourth and fifth grade.

This SUPER-unit includes:
- Anticipation guide
- Chapter questions WITH answer key
- Vocabulary lists
- Vocabulary quizzes WITH answer key
- Writing Prompts WITH rubric
- Supplementals (inferencing, dictionary work, editable letter to parents about the movie)

All items are in an easy-to-read font with fun beagle clip art (images courtesy of PrettyGrafik: etsy.com/shop/Prettygrafikdesign ).

This unit was set up to be read 2 chapters / week, so questions and vocabulary are paired - for example, chapters 2-3 are paired, and 4-5. However, chapters 1, 14 & 15 have their own questions in order to allow for your own pre-reading activities (investigations about beagles, West Virginia), and post-reading activities.

The questions are intended to be open book questions - in accordance with Common Core, students are encouraged to closely read, and to refer back to the text for evidence.

Skills covered in this unit:
- Character traits, feelings
- Characters changing over time
- Cause and effect
- Conflict
- Prediction
- Inferencing
- Figurative language
- Vocabulary from context
- Comprehension
- Personal connections
- Description
- Sequencing
