What a fun novel! And what a fun activity guide to go with it! The lesson in this guide focuses on character analysis. As you and your students read and analyze the Herdmans, you will create mini-lessons to chart character traits, and then practice supporting those traits with evidence from the novel. Chart toppers are included to help guide you through creating a character traits anchor chart. Sixteen vocabulary cards are also included! Back chart toppers and vocabulary cards on colored construction paper and laminate for durability.
The craftivity requires your students to decorate a pumpkin as their favorite Herdman, and create a "Wanted" poster with a descriptive paragraph! Included with the activity are a parent letter for pumpkins, teacher instructions with a pumpkin sample picture, a student activity sheet, sample "Wanted" poster with paragraphy, student "Wanted" posters, and a grading rubric. Make sure to check out the preview to see LOTS of the goodies included in the guide!
