This after-reading activity for Sharon Creech's novel, Walk Two Moons, includes three fun activity sheets that follow up on some of the writings in the story - Mrs. Partridge's secret notes, Sal's mother's postcards, and the journals that caused such an uproar in Mr. Ridgeway's class.
In the secret note activity, students choose and illustrate sayings about particular topics and explain what each one means.
In the postcard activity, students complete travel postcards to friends or relatives with names and addresses, a message, and a picture.
In the journal activity, students rewrite excerpts from some of the journal entries in the novel as the students might have written them if they had known that their journals were going to be read aloud in class.
These activities support a number of the reading and writing standards.
The Easel version is ready to use with directions and answer boxes for students' responses.
