This is the fourth novel study I have created for my blog. As with the first three, this book unit will be provided in weekly posts each Monday beginning with Chapter 1 on July 24, 2017 and running for 27 weeks.

This packet contains the following:

• Lesson Plans at a Glance

• Vocabulary

o vocabulary list with definitions, parts of speech, synonyms, and sample sentences

o vocabulary bookmarks

o vocabulary word cards

o vocabulary storage pocket

o vocabulary test

To make the posts student-friendly, the answer keys will not be included in with handouts found in the individual blog posts. Instead you will find the answer keys at the end of this resource.

Because many schools are going digital, I have made some changes to this unit. The weekly blog posts are student-friendly.

Each blog post will have an audio file that will read the chapter orally. Students may listen to the story on many devices including phones, iPads, Kindles, computers, etc. Students can follow along with the text while listening or simply not press the start button on the audio file to read the chapter independently. These audio files are really great quality. They are provided by LibriVox and are in the public domain.

A link to handouts is provided in each post. These handouts will include the following:

• A printable version of the chapter

• Vocabulary Practice ~ focuses on two vocabulary words from the chapter

• Comprehension Practice ~ a check for understanding with multiple choice, matching, fill in the blanks, and/or short answer questions

• Writing Practice ~ a Constructive Response Writing Prompt
