PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

OVERVIEW:
This is a ready-to-use, 53 page packet for teachers to use with students in grades 4-7 who are reading The Fourteenth Goldfish, by Jennifer L. Holm. It includes a 25 page student workbook, an answer key, a list of research topics for further reading and deeper understanding, and a listing of common core standards (both Literature and Writing) supported in the packet.
The student workbook divides the text into five reading assignments of about 35 pages each. Along with each assignment are 3-4 pages of activities to go along with the reading. They include:
vocabulary reinforcement
similes and idioms
summarizing
demonstrating comprehension
identifying characters
understanding character traits
considering pros and cons
noticing humor
point-of-view
writing a persuasive argument
The workbook is designed for independent work; that way students can have directed work while the teacher is working on small group or individual instruction. Also, the teacher can have a parent or an aide use the workbook as a guide to be able to direct student performance and understanding or to conduct small group discussions of the book. Questions and tasks in the workbook are intended to prompt high level thinking and quality group discussions.
