Have students that you want to challenge their reading ability? Love a story that keeps kids on their toes and to keep reading? Story Thieves is a hilarious story with many twists and turns, dangers, and surprises. I especially love the vocabulary used and the conversations I've had with students about this book!
I have created a comprehension packet to go with the first book of this series. This packet has been divided into six reading assignments. Each assignment contains comprehension questions and vocabulary found within the assigned reading. Some assignments contain writing portions, predicting, and selecting a passage to share. The packet even contains questions that focus on compare/contrast, cause/effect, and summarizing fiction. This book is a longer book and is used with my top reading group in 4th grade.
Story Thieves has an AR level of 5.1 and is worth 11 points. Its Guided Reading level is V.
The packet/unit can last three to five weeks depending on the amount of time you have for Reading. My kids love reading groups, and always ask when we are going to do another one. This is a great way to differentiate between reading levels and reading interest of your students!
Let me know if you have any questions or problems with the download, and please feel free to leave feedback on the product! I have also included some tips at the end of the packet to help your reading group go smoothly!
