PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 32 page, ready-to-use resource is designed for teachers to use with students in grades 5-8 as they read ECHO, a 2016 Newbery Honor book. Included is a vocabulary bookmark master that may be copied, cut in half, and given to students to keep track of new or unusual words while reading the book. In addition, I have included lists of the vocabulary words for teachers who like to use their own games or activities to practice the words. The teacher can then provide whatever vocabulary activities he/she prefers to use with new vocabulary or discuss within reading groups. A student booklet with 9 pages of quotations from the text that contain the vocabulary words is also included in this packet; students will use context and/or a dictionary-type resource to come up with appropriate definitions. An answer key is included.

If you already own my Echo novel study, don't buy this because there is a vocabulary section included in the novel study.

ECHO in a nutshell:
Don’t be put off by the number of pages (590) because they are wide-margined and double-spaced and the stories are so engrossing they will easily and quickly be consumed by the reader! The novel begins like a Grimm’s fairy tale and continues with three separate stories of children whose lives are changed by a harmonica that possesses magical qualities. Friedrich lives in Germany and is dealing with the rise of Hitler, Michael is an orphan living with his brother in seemingly hopeless circumstances in a Pennsylvania home for destitute children, and Ivy struggles with poverty and discrimination on the U.S. West Coast during World War II. Each of these children’s lives are forever changed by music. At the end of the book we learn how their lives are intertwined.
The book is filled with emotion and history and suspense. Kids are sure to be engaged by the elements of fantasy and at the same time will gain valuable historical perspective. ECHO is an epic story that is truly memorable.
The book is appropriate for students in grades 5-8. Reading level approximately 6th grade.
