For this page-turner novel, I wrote focus questions for every chapter: reading comprehension, cause and effect, comparison, character analysis, prediction, and more.
As a read-aloud, the kids are glued to the story.
Also included are directions for a topic specific journal plus writing and discussion topics. There is a glossary, a word search for names in the novel, a mini-lesson on idioms, and spelling and vocabulary worksheets.
A culminating creative writing lesson that is based on the topic specific journal includes directions and a student handout.
No tests or answers are included.
