PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Comparing Trouble with Trolls and Christmas Trolls: A Jan Brett Book Study

This pack was created to accompany the books Trouble with Trolls and Christmas Trolls, both by Jan Brett. It would be a great addition to a Jan Brett author study. All the activities are designed to help students read for understanding and think critically about the texts. The following activities are included:

• Story Maps: Students will determine the characters, setting, problem, and solution in each story. This could be completed as a whole group activity, as a literacy center, independently, or as partner work.

• Comprehension Strips for Christmas Trolls: Comprehension strips allow students to practice returning to a text to find key information to answer specific questions. They are a fun alternative to a traditional question and answer worksheet and can be used as an individual or partner literacy center, or as a whole class activity when displayed under a document camera. Twelve comprehension strips and recording sheets are included.

• Trouble with Trolls Sequencing: This is a cut and paste sequencing activity summarizing Trouble with Trolls. Just add scissors, glue, and construction paper.

• Venn Diagrams: Students will compare and contrast the two stories using lined Venn diagrams. The Venn diagram can also be used for reference when students respond to the writing prompt comparing the two stories.

• Compare and Contrast Response Paper: Students will respond to a writing prompt comparing and contrasting Trouble with Trolls and Christmas Trolls.

• Character Trait Graphic Organizers and Writing Prompts - Students will create bubble maps listing character traits for Treva and the trolls from Trouble with Trolls and Christmas Trolls. Optional writing prompts asking students to explain their choices with evidence from the text are also included.
