Product Description
I can't even begin to tell you how much I LOVE this novel study! My students LOVED it, too! They were begging me to read every day, and I had students who do not enjoy reading find a love for it through this novel study. The activities and assessments in this guide are everything you need to conduct a fun novel study chock-full of critical thinking! Included in the 150+ page guide are:

*Materials and instructions for creating student literature folders so that kiddos stay organized
*Detective's Dictionary with important vocabulary used in the mystery genre
*The story's "blurb," with opportunities to make predictions
*Before-reading/After-reading opinion statements
*Suspect Log to document all 16 characters' jobs, relationships to Westing, Evidence/Motives, and character traits
* Detective Notebook for students to document clues, questions, and suspicious activity (I had students do this in groups - they loved it and OH MY the discussions I heard!!!)
*Vocabulary cards for all 9 sections of the novel
*Vocabulary glossaries (with definitions) and a section to document context clues for each of the 9 sections
*Chapter title predictions and summaries for each of the 9 sections
*"To the Teacher" sample discussion questions for each of the 9 sections
*Reading skills/activities imbedded in each section (conflict, graphic organizers, details, problem/solution, point of view)
*10-question quizzes (multiple choice & short answer) for each of the 9 sections, answer keys included
*End-of-Novel-Assessment, including matching, true/false, short answer, essay, & critical thinking questions (answer key included)

I broke the novel into 9 sections, with about the same number of pages in each section. Check out the preview to see ALL of the goodies in Section 1!!! I used this novel with my 5th graders and it was challenging, but totally doable! It would be a great middle school novel, but it is so ENGAGING that I think it would work perfectly for an enrichment group in 3rd or 4th grade, too.
