Product Description
Share this magical tale with your third graders before the school year ends and get them hooked on the series for summer reading! The Indian in the Cupboard: CCSS-Aligned 4th Grade Novel Work was one of my earliest products. I've now tailored this product for 3rd grade with a focus on vocabulary, parts of speech and simple sentence structure with an introduction to compound sentences with coordinating conjunctions. Practice in avoiding sentence fragments is also included.

This is not your typical novel study with comprehension questions and then empty space for the students to respond. This review guides the student through the grammar while reviewing the story. Examples from the story highlight the grammar the students will practice and stimulate discussion of the story.

Included in this unique product:

* Vocabulary: 80 words
* Grammar: 30 pages
- compound words
- simple and compound predicates,
- regular and irregular verbs in the simple past tense
- questions with WHAT, WHERE and WHY
- singular and plural possessive nouns,
- compound sentences with AND, BUT and SO
- dependent clauses with the subordinating conjunction BECAUSE
* Plurals & Possessives: This activity is also available to be purchased separately here.

Download the free preview to see a a detailed outline, a sample of the vocabulary words and a portion of the answer key. This novel study is divided into Chapters 1-2, 3-4, 5-8, 9-12 and 13-16.

All items are derived from the story and are original except where a page number is referenced.
