If you want a self-contained, independent, ready-to-go unit to teach fantasy to upper third, fourth, fifth, and lower sixth grade, this is for you. All 21 chapters have 3-5 vocabulary words to define within the contexts (Common Core State Standards - CCSS - aligned), and then comprehension with the Fountas and Pinnell "within", "beyond", and "about" the text. Students can choose a question from each category to writ about in their notebooks if they wish. Instructions are very clear on the PDF's and students can simply paste these in their Reader's Notebooks. Even a rubric is included. I have used these very successfully with my 5th grade class, and they love to read this silly story which exemplifies the elements of high fantasy wonderfully. Enjoy.
