Great for the month of October as you prepare for Halloween, Roald Dahl's "The Witches" will captivate your students. This resource follows the book chapter-by-chapter with follow-up reading responses which require your students to utilize a variety of reading strategies, including:
- activating prior knowledge
- summarizing key points
- expanding vocabulary
- comparing and contrasting
- making connections
You can download a FREE preview of this resource here.
It also includes some specific writing forms, including process writing, opinion writing, and an acrostic poem. A poll and graph (Data Management) and some Media Literacy activities are also included. Extra activities (which aren't chapter-specific) are provided as are 3 pages of word wall words (including 4 blank frames) and a student title page for duotangs/folders.
This novel study is intended for primary and early junior-level learners. Pages are free from over-cluttering to allow for students to focus and to make their writing, artwork, and accomplishments the star attraction.
