The Skirt by Gary Soto is a beautiful realistic fiction story that demonstrates the importance of heritage and family. You will love the ease of using this novel study packet for students to demonstrate comprehension of the book. It is aligned to mostly second grade common core standards. There are questions for every chapter including text based, inference questions and critical thinking. Students will make text to self and text to text connections while learning about a culture.
There are reading strategy graphic organizers and a worksheet on identifying the speaker with an Answer Key for that page only.
