This is great activity for students to do independently. Every two chapters, students answer a journal prompt that has to do with the current chapters. Additionally, they are given 4 vocabulary words that are in the current chapters. My students create their own Picture Dictionary similar to the one Peter has. Feel free to download it for free and use it with your students! I use it during Daily 5 time. Students rotate through 4 stations. Read to Self (silently read the chapter), Read to Someone Else/Listen to Reading (we read together in a small group), Word Work (picture dictionaries that I have on TPT for free), and Writing (journal prompts).
