This literature study is for The Long Winter, by Laura Ingalls Wilder grade is Common Core aligned.
There is a cover page that the students design. The four journal pages include vocabulary, story sequencing, character traits, drawing conclusions, story climax, predicting, etc. and are meant to be copied multiple times to create a 33 page (double-sided) journal for each student.
My students loved this unit and the end results of their journals were something they would want to keep.
