There are so many good books and so little time. It seems as if we barely have time to preview books we are considering adding to our ELA curriculum, the task of creating summaries, discussion questions, lesson plans, writing assignments, test, quizzes, etc...is unthinkable. I strive to make my completely original literature guides as content-rich as possible inferential questions and literature-based writing mini-lessons and assignments My literature guides are adaptable to your classroom situations, and you should feel free to use as much or as little of the material as necessary. Coverage of the Common Core Standards is included so that you are aware of the standards you are covering as you teach. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, comments, or concerns. Please also grace us with positive feedback if you like what you see.
Umbrella Summer is a beautiful story by Lisa Graff. It has created so many meaningful moments in my classroom. I highly recommend this fabulous book for your 4th through 8th graders!
