Product Description
This is the unit I use with my 6th graders. I usually start with a movie or article or both about down syndrome.
We read chapter by chapter each day. We read together, I read, they read with a partner, or they read silently. Each day differs. After each chapter they complete a journal page about that chapter. You can make this a homework grade or have group discussions the next day of what they wrote as their answers.
After so many chapters, I give a short quiz. There are 4 quizzes in this bundle. I also have 2 options for a final novel test. Each quiz and test is labeled with points and common core standards. There are also 2 vocabulary quizzes if you choose to use those.
There is also an egg baby project that I do every year. The kids love this!! I boil the eggs and bring them. They must bring the basket for their baby.
Since idioms are used throughout this story, there is also an idiom drawing I do as well.
The journal pages will go into a journal that they usually make out of construction paper.

Included in this bundle are:
*24 journal pages
*6 quizzes labeled with points and standards
*2 options for a final test labeled with points and standards
*Egg baby project with rubric
*Journal rubric
*Idiom drawing rubric
