The Trumpet of the Swan is my very favorite E. B. White book, and also my students’. There is so much information in the book, and so many ways you can approach it. I don’t do the same activities/worksheets every year, but have included a few that I cover in this set of 25 pages including answer keys. Some of the pages included do not cover the entire book, however there are a few that do. Some of the pages in this set are: vocabulary matching, wordsearch, comprehension test over entire book (2 format choices), multiple choice, sequencing activity for small groups (copy on colored paper and laminate – have groups race to see who gets theirs in the correct order first, which is also studying for the sequencing test), sequencing test, fill in the sequence boxes – multiple choice, illustrate favorite part of the book, compare and contrast table chart – comparing book and movie, 2 pages of what I call storyboards that they complete after each chapter or after 2 or 3 chapters (I have students use to create a pop-up book during the reading of the book or after we finish – the kids are so creative and they always turn out great!!!), and some other general pages for vocabulary and setting. Some of the Common Core Standards covered – RL.4.2, RL.4.3, RL.4.7, RI.4.4, and RI.4.5. Again – there are so many more activities to do with this book. Enjoy and I hope this is helpful.
