Product Description
This novel unit is for Elizabeth Winthrop’s novel titled The Castle in the Attic. This is a four-week unit, but the materials and activities included can be implemented in your classroom as you see fit.

***What’s Included?***

BEFORE READING ACTIVITY – CASTLE TOUR

Before you begin reading the novel, students have the opportunity to learn about the different parts of a castle in this fun activity!

DURING READING ACTIVITY – CHAPTER TITLES

Elizabeth Winthrop did not come up with chapter titles for this novel. Can you come up with an appropriate title for each chapter as you read? Students will complete this activity as they read the novel, focusing on main idea.

PLANNING GUIDE

I encourage you to use the activities in this unit in a way that works best for your classroom. These activities are meant to be flexible! Even so, I’ve included a Planning Guide that explains how I complete this unit with my own class.

CHAPTER SUMMARIES

The detailed chapter summaries are written as a quick-reference for teachers as they work through the novel with their students.

VOCABULARY WORD LIST

This novel is packed with fantastic vocabulary words. For each of the four sections, you will find a list of great words in each chapter along with the page numbers where you will find them.

VOCABULARY BOOKMARKS

For each of the four sections, you’ll also find a vocabulary bookmark for the kids to use while they’re reading. Students love having the definitions of challenging words right there in front of them. Looking words up while reading is time consuming, and it takes away from their focus on the plot of the story. These bookmarks can be copied and passed out to students every week.

READING QUIZZES

For each of the four sections, you will find a quiz that assesses a student’s understanding of basic plot elements in chapters read that week. It is the perfect way to determine whether or not a student completed the assigned reading. (Critical thinking and analysis questions are kept for discussion questions.) I’ve included an answer key with page numbers for every quiz. NOTE: Remember, I highly encourage you to use these materials in any way that works best for you. Who says this needs to be a quiz? You can always use these multiple-choice/short answer questions as a group activity or a homework assignment!

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

For each of the four sections, I’ve created discussion questions that are designed to get students to think critically about what they’ve just read. I suggest completing discussion questions AFTER students take the reading quiz for those sections. These discussion questions can be discussed as a whole-group, or they can be copied and cut apart for small-group discussions. Blank cards have been included in case you would like to add your own questions. Each section includes 6 discussion question cards.
