The Hundred Dresses by Eleanor Estes is a Newbery Honor Book and a timeless classic about bullying and its effects on everyone involved.
Although it is assigned a DRA level 38 (3rd grade), I use this for book study with my 5th graders at the beginning of every school year because I consider the theme and vocabulary to be more suited to students of their age. My students are often not very enthusiastic about my choice of text (especially the boys), but by the end of the book they are begging for it not to be over, and asking if there is a sequel! The life lessons taught in The Hundred Dresses are drawn on all through the school year.
This download includes a cause and effect chart for chapter 5, and an answer key with suggested responses. Students will be required to fill in the effect of a given cause, or the cause of a given effect.
