Are you thinking about doing a novel study for "Strider" (the sequel to "Dear Mr. Henshaw") by Beverly Cleary? If so, this packet of materials is all you need! A unit outline is provided that divides the book into four sections.
For EACH section, you get:
•Writing prompt that encourages higher level thinking and creativity
•Higher level thinking questions to use in literature circles
•Comprehension questions (10 questions)
•Comprehension questions Answer Key
•Vocabulary words (8 words chosen from the reading)
•Quiz (Vocabulary and Comprehension)
•Quiz Answer Keys
I have also included a Question and Prediction Graphic Organizer that I use in all my novel studies. Before starting each section, have your students practice their questioning and predicting skills by writing three questions about what they want to know in the section and make a prediction about what they think will happen.
Samples are provided for this novel study if you want to take a look. If you want to get a better idea of just how much you actually get for your money, check out my listing for "Dear Mr. Henshaw" (free download)!
