PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Thank you for considering my Acorn People packet! I hope you have discovered what a little treasure of a book this is - full of challenges and conquering, rich in both the happy and the tragic, and along with the author, Ron Jones, a catalyst for much self-reflection and awareness!

A true story, The Acorn People gives us an "insider's" perspective into the lives of some truly handicapped, yet beautiful young people who have a rare opportunity to be "normal." We glean insight into life from their side, their parents' side, and that of those who work closely with them.

A short read, a powerful voice, and eyes that see for us or alongside us, this is a gripping tale of the power of love and friendship mixed with a lot of patience, kindness, and
perseverance.

The activities are not arranged in sequential order. You are the best qualified to determine which activities to use when. Written for my fourth and fifth grade students, activities include:
Vocabulary by the Chapter/Day
Be a Word Nerd Vocabulary Activity
Vocabulary Games
Blank Vocabulary Definition Page
Thinking About It All (Comprehension/Thought Questions)
Some Final Thoughts (Composition Writing)

I sincerely hope that the story and these exercises will open your hearts and those of your students and, in the process, effect a change in us all.
