This pack includes guided reading plans for the following text:
War Horse (aimed at ages 10 - 12)
In total there are 11 guided reading lesson plans, covering each of the chapters in the book. Each plan contains a 'reading and responding to the text' activity which is designed to be completed with the class teacher with the reading group. There are then follow up independent activities which the children can then complete during the remainder of the week. All of these activities are closely linked to each of the reading assessment focuses (UK curriculum) and these are listed at the beginning of each plan.
Note that the final week of the plans asks the children to compare the book to the film. The film is rated a 12 so for younger children you would need to seek the permission of a parent/guardian before showing.
Each plan also has a list of difficult words which the children can check the meaning of before the teacher led session, space to list the names of the children who are working on the text and a space for a teacher notes and evaluation.
The plans have been written by an experienced school teacher and have been tried and tested in the classroom.
