Perfect for a read-aloud novel of THE CRICKET IN TIMES SQUARE by George Seldon. Broken into chapters, this packet that I've created provides opportunities for students to practice skills in comprehension, prediction, application, recall, writing, and creative extension. Also included is a test at the end. The entire activity would be wort 100 points (80 for the packet and 20 for the test). It also comes with an answer key with suggested answers.
