I created this unit for a fifth grade class. All vocabulary words were drawn from the story and provide page numbers for each. All quizzes were created for each one-third of the story using DOK levels and Common Core standards.
- 6 Vocabulary pages of 10 words max.
- 3 Quizzes
- Answer keys for quizzes
I read the story aloud to my class chapter-by-chapter and held discussions daily. Vocabulary pages should be handed out before those chapters have been read. Students use dictionaries or dictionary websites to access definitions. Quizzes are given every 9 chapters. I supplemented writing prompts as we went along that you can create for your class's abilities and interests. Character maps were also found to be extremely helpful.
Reading grades can be taken with in-class work and discussion, as well as homework. Standards not included are writing and speaking & listening which will vary.
I hope you enjoy it as much as me and my students did! :)
