The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo Novel Study (60 pages)
This unit includes vocabulary for every chapter, chapter questions, a theme writing activity, a visualization activity, and a compare and contrast activity.
An answer key for the chapter questions and test is included.
This book has short chapters so I grouped the questions in 2 - 3 chapters however it is still set up so that you could read a chapter and stop and answer the questions if needed. Each chapter has one-four questions.
The vocabulary is grouped in 2-3 chapters and should be done prior to reading. The vocabulary sheet includes the word and then leaves space for the students to write the definition, the sentence from the book, and their own sentence. Each vocabulary sheet has around four words.
The theme activity refers to the overall theme of the book light vs. dark, and the visualization and cause & effect activities have specific page numbers to refer to in the book to help your students with the activity.
There is a two page multiple choice and complete sentence answer test.
