Use this novel study to increase comprehension and engagement with your students. This comprehensive lesson is designed to go along with a read-aloud of The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies. Integrate math, social skills, comprehension, and language with this book designed to introduce children to basic economic principles.
Expose your students to age appropriate reading material while keeping the information simple and within their abilities.
I use this novel study with my students in an substantially separate 3rd-6th classroom.
The worksheets relate the material from the book to concepts the students already know, allowing for improved comprehension and generalization of skills.
Skills targeted include:
- math word problems (guided practice, independent practice, 2 step problems)
- vocabulary (match word to definition)
- wh questions (a short answer version and a multiple choice version)
- metaphors and similes
- social skills
- writing prompts
- idioms/figures of speech
The preview shows a sample of the activities from several different chapters - it is not all inclusive.
