Mary Pope Osborne's Magic Tree House
series is great choice for first and second graders who are ready for chapter books. The fifth book in the series, Night of the Ninjas
brings Jack and Annie to ancient Japan where they begin searching for things that can help break the spell on Morgan le Fey. With the help of ninjas, they collect the first: a moonstone. Make the most of your students' independent reading with activities to check comprehension, revisit vocabulary, and practice grammar. This product can be used in groups, pairs or independently.
Included in this digital download:
• Summary Strips
• Grammar Focus: The Simple Past Tense
• R-E-A-D Worksheet
Students reorder 14 Summary Strips to retell the story chronologically. They go back to the Summary Strips to highlight and categorize irregular and regular verbs in the simple past tense. Then, they complete a R-E-A-D worksheet which presents 20 original sentences which derive from the story and contain one grammatical error each. Students can do one from each column (R-E-A-D) or all 20, depending on their level.
All items are original and derive from the story.
Great for a class with a wide range of reading levels. This series still appeals to fourth and fifth graders which makes it a smart choice for ELL students.
