This is a ready to go journal for shared reading of the Novel Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo. It hit many Common Core Language Arts Standards, including figurative language, character traits, visualizing, using evidence to back up your thinking and much more. There is a journal activity for every 3 chapters. This was used in my classroom and was very effective in getting students to think deeper. This is great to use just before testing as a review of many deeper thinking skills and reading strategies! Please provide feedback.
