PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

“This is a great and thorough study that my students can dive into, pens in hand!”

The 2013 Newbery Award-Winning Novel The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate is a moving story told from the perspective of a shopping mall gorilla. Inspired by true events, this story is full of emotion and students connect with Ivan’s narrative and first-person point-of-view from page one.

As a result, I have found that this is an ideal text to use as a whole class read-aloud or literature circle selection to encourage response to text and routine writing.

These "Ready To Print" student pages meet FIVE of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English Language Arts (ELA) for Grades 3-5: Reading Literature, Writing, and Language.

The enclosed Journal pages provide space for students to write a note to Ivan after daily reading.

Student Directions Read:
After each day’s reading, write a note to Ivan. This note could congratulate him on something, give him advice, empathize with him, pass along some of your background knowledge, tell him about a connection you have with him, or warn him about another character. You’re writing to Ivan as if you are a friend. Let your personality show in your note!

Each entry must have:
• At least three complete sentences
• Show evidence from/make reference to the text
• Have beginning capitals & end punctuation

You may wish to complete the note on the first page together so that students have a model to reference throughout the project.

I have included a Teacher Rubric for assessment.

Thank your for your interest and I hope you enjoy this product from Project Hallway!
