One of the most entertaining children's books is Judy Blume's Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, and this unit is designed to pair with the novel for open ended comprehension questions, vocabulary activities, a writing assignment, and tests. This easy to prep unit contains:
* Open ended questions requiring higher level thinking and text evidence. Some question topics include comparing and contrasting characters, cause/effect, character analysis, sequencing, plot analysis, setting, and opinion.
* Vocabulary activities include ten words with student-friendly definitions to study, three homework sheets (multiple choice, short answer, and crossword), and a matching vocabulary quiz with answers.
* Three section tests for chapters 1-3, 4-6, and 7-10 with both multiple choice and open ended questions. Answer keys included for all section tests.
The unit is aligned with Common Core State Standards for ELA-Literacy.
