This Digital Journal is designed to accompany a novel study of Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt. The Journal is perfect for the 1:1 Classroom or any classrooms that have access to devices in the classroom. If necessary, once you open the document, you can print the pages to deliver to any student (or class) that would be better suited with a paper version of this journal. This is a Google Slides Presentation that doubles as a digital journal for students. The advantage of having this journal delivered in Google Slides is that students can always see all of the slides on the left hand side of their screen to make "flipping pages" easy.
This novel study will focus on figurative language and Notice and Note Signposts
Please check out the following website to learn more about the Signposts to Notice & Note:
Signposts have been identified for all sections of the novel so that the teacher can focus on the discussion and a solid introduction of the Signposts with students. Beginning with Chapter 13, students will be able to Notice and Note their own Signposts. I would suggest having a Notice & Note resource available for students via a bookmark or posters in the classroom. Check out this blog for bookmark resources. I use these bookmarks in my classroom: http://www.ladybugsteacherfiles.com/2014/10/notice-note-student-bookmarks.html
