PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This item contains 6 centers used for the novel Hatchet.
The centers include:
Comprehension ( 2 per page)
Vocabulary (2 per page)
Personal Response
Summarize
Journal Writing
and Figurative Language

The Letter Writing, Summarize, Personal Response, and Figurative Language Center contain directions. Although the directions do not change week to week, the students' work will obviously change when being introduced to each chapter.

When can I use this?
When you are done reading each chapter ( or two chapters) students will work in groups to complete each literacy center. Allow the students about 20-25 minutes per center. Have the students work with each other!

How can I use this?
Lucky for you, you can use this literacy center pack in multiple ways. Whatever works best for your classroom! You can do one chapter a week or two chapters a week! You know what's best for your students!

COMPREHENSION
In the comprehension center, you can do many things. There are 2-3 questions per chapter. Depending on the ability of your students, you can have them answer all questions. You can also differentiate by having the students choose 1 or 2 questions out of the 3.

VOCAB
In the vocabulary center, the students will define the unknown word.
Here are some possibilities (Students can do all or some):
-Students use context clues to come up with their own definition for the vocabulary word.
-Students use a dictionary to define the word and then write their own sentence using that word.

JOURNAL WRITING
This center is the same card, however its task will change each chapter.
The students will pretend that they are writing a journal entry as Leo, the main character. They will pretend that they are Leo and write about the experiences that he is encountering throughout each chapter. The language should be informal since it is in the form of a letter.

FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE
This center is the same card, however its task will change each chapter.
The students will find examples of figurative language used in each chapter. The amount of figurative language you want the students to find depends on your students and their abilities. I tried 5-6 with my 6th graders and I was successful.

SUMMARIZE
This center is the same card, however its task will change each chapter.
Summarizing is a great way to check comprehension. Students will summarize what was read in that chapter for the week. There should not be opinions or direct quotes from the text in a summary.

PERSONAL RESPONSE
This center is the same card, however its task will change each chapter.
Students will write down questions they have, predictions, text-to-self connections, their reaction to the situations, the characters, and overall thoughts about what happened in the chapter.
