PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo Interactive Notebook. This unit includes vocabulary terms, poetry, author biography research, themes, character traits, chapter summary, and note taking activities.


All interactive pages have been designed with easy-to-cut and easy-to-fold edges for frustration-free creativity!


If you're looking for a complete book unit that is full of higher-level activities and NOT boring multiple choice tests, then this is it! This resource is complete on its own, but also mingles seamlessly with your current lesson.


This unit is also available in traditional worksheet-type activities. Some teachers like to have both versions for the different needs of their students. You can find the NOVEL UNIT HERE:

"THE TALE OF DESPEREAUX" NOVEL UNIT


PLEASE NOTE: If you purchase the interactive notebook AND the novel unit, you will receive the same activities. The interactive notebook consists of cut and paste activities, while the novel unit activities are in a traditional worksheet format.


Included in this resource is an art poster with a quote from the author. Perfect to hang on your bulletin board or make extra copies to send home with your students... it's a great way to continue making connections to your novel even when it's not reading time. My favorite way of using quotes is for an easy writing prompt. Encourage your students to think about what influenced the author's purpose behind their words.


In addition, you'll find a BONUS tri-fold bookmark that makes note taking during reading time super easy!


This interactive notebook novel study is designed to be a relaxed unit for both teacher and students. The preparation is minimal. I have even included several pictures on how the completed project should look so there is no need to make a sample.
