Product Description

OVERVIEW:

THIS STORY IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN THE BUNDLE FOR COLLECTION 4.

These interactive notebook activities are an engaging way to help your students understand narrative elements via the short story “What Do Fish Have to Do with Anything?” Filled with cute illustrations and step-by-step directions, these activities are specifically designed to enhance the Fiction CLOSE READER selection “What Do Fish Have to Do with Anything?” by Avi from HMH Collections Grade 6.

Common core-based lesson plans, rubrics and keys are all included as well as easy to cut pieces that save time. Every teacher has their own preference for notebook types. So, I have decided to design as a full 8 ½”X 11” inch page, which can be reduced on a copier by 75% to fit composition notebooks but would require trimming. I usually print off two pages per sheet on the copier and then cut in half, so I only have 1 cut and it fits perfectly into the composition book.

THESE ACTIVITIES INCLUDE:

Vocabulary Notes and Activities

The vocabulary words in this selection are paired with five different options of activities teachers/students can choose from to complete. The notes contain a key for easy class presentation.

Plot, Theme and Character Activities

To assist students in comprehension of this story and to review plot and character analysis, these activities can be completed either as a class or independently, contingent on the level of proficiency of your students. Students can practice writing about theme and summaries through guided writing activities with rubrics for easy grading.

Writing a Dialogue

A brainstorming page as well as a place for writing a dialogue between two conflicting characters allow students to practice this skill as well as use their creativity that can be a springboard for a longer short story.

Rubrics

Standards-based rubrics included for each writing assignment, which allows students to understand what they have accomplished or need to revise to improve their writing. I usually allow students to revise if they receive a 2 or lower (for me a 2 is a C) for a higher score (or grade).

This product was developed by an award-winning, highly qualified teacher and 21-year veteran of the classroom, with ESL and ESE certification. I use these materials with my students in my classroom, so I know what students respond to and I try to make materials in which ALL students can be successful.

ORGANIZATION OF INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOK MATERIALS:

In this resource, you will find a variety of Interactive Notebook activities that will support your students’ understanding of the HMH Collections textbook.

Lessons Pages are the TEACHER input pages that are designed to be used as the right-hand side pages of the notebook. However, you can use them anyway you want. Activity Pages are the STUDENT output pages that are designed to be used on the left-hand side pages of the notebook. These often include writing, drawing, graphic organizers, etc. Rubrics for all writing assignments are included.
