PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The One and Only Ivan, by Katherine Applegate is an absolutely amazing story! This new classic, which is also a Newberry award winning book, is perfect for the classroom, whether you're using this for a read-aloud, small group literature circles, or as a whole class read.

This literature guide/book study includes the following:

There are four sections on each of the comprehension pages:
*Fill in the blank: These are directly from the text, and almost always word for word from the story.
*Thinking Deeply– There are two questions per section included. These questions ask students to write and think a bit more deeply about the text.
*Vivid Vocabulary: Three vocabulary words are included, which students need to look up in a dictionary. Students then write the definition of the words on the study guide page.
*Illustrations of Ivan– After each section, students are asked to draw a picture of Ivan based on the information read within those chapters.

There are also 4 graphic organizers to deepen understanding.
*Author's Purpose
*Story Structure
*Sequence Events
*Wrapping it all up

The chapters in this book are not numbered, so I chunked each of the comprehension pages based on chapter titles. It tells you and your students where to begin reading for the day, and where to end reading. Of course, if you need to read these sections over the course of a couple days, that would work, too.

Just to you are aware, there is NOT an answer key included, as many of the questions in this packet are subjective and open-ended.

I hope you enjoy this story as much as I did, and I hope this packet helps your kiddos deepen their understanding of the text.

Thanks for looking!!
