This is a 19 page packet of materials created by Jean Martin to use with students in grades 3-6 who are reading the novel, Shiloh Season, by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. It includes a 13 page student booklet designed to reinforce essential reading, thinking, and writing skills for students in grades 3-6. Skills include summarizing, visualizing, questioning, point-of-view, connecting to the text, cause and effect, inferring, explaining, general comprehension, and vocabulary. Also included is an answer key for use by the teacher or aide.
The student booklet is divided into four reading assignments (about 30 pages each) with questions and activities to go with each one; to create individual student booklets, just copy and give three staples to the left side. In addition, there is a set of culminating activities at the end of the booklet. The booklet is designed for independent work so that students may be working on this in class while the teacher is meeting with another group.
