This instruction sheet for students outlines the requirements for an in-class book project. It is based on "spooky" books read in leveled groups. I used it with two heterogeneous fifth grade classes and assigned them to read adapted versions of novels such as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Frankenstein, and The Time Machine. It could be adapted to be used with shorter chapter books or even a variety of picture books that also fit the spooky or adventure theme. Students read in class for 15-20 minutes each day and then complete a task that uses one focus skill (summarizing, illustrating, predicting, and vocabulary). Sharing time is built in weekly. I hope you enjoy using my product!
