This novel study was designed for use with my guided reading groups. In preparation for Smarter Balanced assessments I have been working hard to help students develop independence by responding to text through writing. This novel study does just that. Students read independently and respond to each question supporting all answers with evidence from the text. Then through thoughtful feedback & guided reading, discussion, and writing practice students gain the skills and confidence necessary to demonstrate success independently!
In this product you will find:
-Student reading calendar for keeping track of reading and writing assignments. This is essential in making sure every student comes to reading group prepared and ready to discuss the text.
-A writing response page with 2-3 questions and vocabulary study for each chapter (10 chapters total)
-Detailed answer key
