The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies is an engaging and relatable young adult novel with great opportunities for reading comprehension practice, reading standards lessons, AND ties in to several math concepts.
This product includes a novel guide and math activities related to the story. For every chapter, the novel guide includes: vocabulary words and definitions that will increase comprehension, academic vocabulary and definitions (for words such as cause, effect, inference, setting, prediction, etc.), comprehension questions, and a Common Core aligned extension activity. The Math Connection section includes worksheets that correspond to the "math teachable moments" from several chapters and an activity where your students will plan their own lemonade stand. There are several well written word problems.
Please note, an answer key is not included for the reading questions because they are open ended. However, a key is included for the math activities.
Your students will benefit from this purchase because opportunities to connect math and reading are rare, yet extremely valuable. Thank you for visiting my tpt store!
