This product was designed to measure comprehension using the novel The Chocolate Touch by Patrick Skene Catling. All questions were created to match the Common Core and close reading standards.
There are between three and five questions per chapter, with the final chapter asking students to write their own story using the book as a mentor text.
Several skills are assessed, including genre, author's purpose, point of view, character traits, character development, making inferences, drawing conclusions, sequencing, determining cause and effect, text structure, vocabulary, prefixes and suffixes, problem and solution, compare and contrast, main idea, figurative language, determining theme, and summarizing.
Students will answer open ended questions, complete creative writing activities, fill in diagrams and graphic organizers, and create illustrations to support their comprehension.
An answer key is included.
