Jessica Day George's exciting book about the Castle Glower is fanciful and inspiring. With this unit, create a 1/2 page size booklet for each child to answer comprehension questions, predict outcomes, express their own opinions, and write creatively in response to the story. My students love small workbooks and I love to let them create a pocket in their reading notebook to store the completed workbook. The last page of this unit is an extra activity that allows students to draw part of the castle and imagine how they would change it if they could.
Thanks to Graphics from the Pond for the neat Medieval clip art!
