Thank you for your interest! This journal includes 40 prompts for your students to explore. As students read through the classic novel, Where the Red Fern Grows, they are able to reflect on literary elements and make connections to their own lives.
There are 2 journals included for each chapter. The Jump-Start Journal is intended for students to complete before they read the text. These journal entries allow students to compare/contrast the novel with their own lives. The connections they make will help students comprehend the chapter on a deeper level as well as recall the events more effectively. They will also allow students to make predictions about what is to come in the chapter. The second journal is the Sign-off Journal. Unlike the Jump-Start Journal, this second version is intended to be completed after students finish the chapter. These entries will allow students to reflect on the plot, characters, author purpose, etc.
After finishing this packet, students will have written about Where the Red Fern Grows 40 times! This will greatly improve their retention of the novel and their enjoyment of its themes. Enjoy!
BONUS!! Now you will also receive a PowerPoint with each prompt! Students can choose to follow along in their journals or use the visual aid on the screen!
