This is a ready-to-use, custom-made 58 page packet for teachers to use with students in grades 5-8 who are reading the 2016 book, The Seventh Wish, by Kate Messner. It includes a 25 page student workbook, an answer key, a list of teacher online resources, and a listing of common core standards (both Literature and Writing) supported in the packet.
The student workbook divides the text into five reading assignments of about 40-45 pages each. Along with each assignment are 3-4 pages of activities to go along with the reading. They include:
similes, idioms, personification, onomatopoeia
understanding character traits
The workbook is designed for independent work; that way students can have directed work while the teacher is working on small group or individual instruction. Also, the teacher can have a parent or an aide use the workbook as a guide to be able to direct student performance and understanding or to conduct small group discussions of the book. Questions and tasks in the workbook are intended to prompt high level thinking and quality group discussions.

Published in 2016 this the entertaining and thought-provoking story of 12-year-old Charlie whose life mostly revolves around her family (she’s especially close to her older sister, Abby), her best friends, and her Irish dance lessons. When she encounters a magic fish that grants her wishes, she’s pretty confident that she’s got everything in her life under control. That is, until her perfect family becomes a little less perfect when Abby has a crisis that affects them all. This book poses interesting questions about life, relationships, and growing up and does so with a bit of magic and humor mixed in.
