The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate is a beautiful novel written from the perspective of a gorilla in captivity. I've included questions for most chapters of the book, theme graphic organizer, a book project choice board and pages for students to write new vocabulary they've acquired through reading.

I use this booklet with my fifth grade guided reading group to monitor comprehension. The questions range in complexity from basic comprehension focused on major plot points and characters to higher order thinking questions requiring longer responses. This product can be used for independent reading, read aloud or literature circles.
I've included two versions of the same booklet. The first version will allow you to create an organized booklet by copying the pages double sided. The second option is for teachers who only want to hand out two chapters at a time. I've included printing tips in the introduction if you want to create the collated booklet.
Please note: This is NOT a novel study. I have not included chapter notes for the teacher or vocabulary ideas. This is a booklet of questions to help your students fully appreciate the novel. I don't want any one to be disappointed in their purchase, so please ask if you have any questions!
