Product Description
This bundle for “Tuck Everlasting” has everything that you need to teach this amazing novel!

When you purchase this bundle, you receive:

* A 7 page guide for using the resources in your classroom.

* At least one graphic organizer for EACH chapter! Each organizer was created based on COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS. These organizers were not just revamped and “labeled” as Common Core, but created specifically based on the Common Core Standards. Some chapters have more than one graphic organizer, have a writing task, or have a writing task based on the graphic organizer. EVERY organizer includes learning targets (objectives) and the Common Core Standard(s) numbers.

The options for each chapter can allow you to differentiate and give students practice based on their needs. These also provide students with group work, station work, partner work, homework, and formative assessments. These organizers can be used to practice skills students have already learned and allow teachable moments for skills that you haven’t taught students yet.

* A CLOSE READING organizer page for EACH chapter which includes space for students to track literary elements, summarize each chapter, annotate the text, identify unknown vocabulary words using context clues, record reading strategy usage, AND 3-4 text-dependent questions. Students can complete the close reading page while you read the novel aloud or while they read the novel independently. The close reading pages help students focus on the novel, providing the close reading experience Common Core Demands for your students.

* A PDF version of a PowerPoint with one board work slide and one exit slip slide for EVERY chapter! 58 slides in all! Each board work slide gives students a chance to review information from the previous chapter, practice with figurative language, and practice grammar skills. Each exit slip slide gives you a quick formative assessment to see if students understood key elements from the chapter that they just read.

Here is what is NOT included: Specific Vocabulary Words. Why not? Because based on Common Core, students are encouraged to find unknown words and use context clues and other knowledge like word parts, roots, etc. to determine the meaning of those words. Space for students to identify unknown words and determine their meaning is included on the back side of each chapter journal page. Students still practice these skills and work with vocabulary, but based on words they determine, not a pre-determined list.
