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 cause and effect worksheet. This novel study also includes a two page test to be used when your students have finished the book.
A full answer key for the chapter questions and test is included.
This book has short chapters, so I grouped the questions in 2 - 3 chapters. Each chapter has one-four comprehension 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 - five words.
The theme activity refers to the overall theme of the book light vs. dark, and the visualization and cause and effect activities have specific page numbers to refer to in the book to help your students with the activities.
