Family literacy packs are meant to be sent home with a student for a week at a time as a replacement for regular homework. Family literacy packs target specific literacy skills and provide families with the resources they need to practice developing those skills at home in a fun and engaging manner.
This literacy pack is based on the book Stellaluna by Janell Cannon. It targets skills such as using vocabulary strategies, examining characters’ points of view, describing how characters respond to problems, and making inferences about characters.
This literacy pack includes:
• “Dear Family” Letter with Directions
• Board Game that targets reading comprehension skills (available in File Folder game size & ledger paper size (11x17) with 2 color options)
• Characters’ Point of View Tic-Tac-Toe Game
• Writing Prompts

• Venn Diagram for Comparing & Contrasting Bats with Birds
• Character Cut-Outs for Retelling Practice
• Vocabulary Strategies Reference Sheet

• Teacher Directions for printing/literacy pack assembly
• Materials List

All resources are provided in Color and Black & White. This will download as a ZIP file. Inside the ZIP file are organized folders with PDF files to help you find the resources you are looking for.
Note: To ready this literacy pack for use to send home with your students, there are some supplemental materials required. You will need to have a copy of the book, a composition notebook, dice, popsicle/craft sticks, 2 sheet protectors, 2 dry erase markers, a dry erase marker eraser, and a bag to send materials home in.
