Product Description
This is a novel study for the Newberry award winning book The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo. The book and activities that go with it are broken up into 14 sections. Each section contains comprehension questions, an opportunity for students to record new vocabulary for that section, and an opportunity to practice reading and literacy skills. There are also task cards for the literature circle discussion questions and activities that the publisher included at the end of the literature circle edition of The Tale of Despereaux so that you can use those easily with your cooperative learning structures.
