|This packet challenges them to use context clues to determine the meaning of a word.|
They know if they come to a difficult question to confer quietly with a Book Club member since I am busy conducting guided reading groups.
There are 3 thinking maps in this packet. A double bubble to compare/contrast two characters, a double bubble to compare/contrast the two books, and a tree map cut and paste to sort words from the story into the parts of speech.
When they finish the book, they take an AR test before moving on to regular Daily 5 choices. I added some fun to this packet by asking them to read words backwards like Nate did in the book. Their favorite activity by far though was when I mixed up a secret formula for invisible ink and let them write a secret message. When it was dry, they switched papers with a Book Club member and painted with grape juice to reveal the message! Directions are included in the download.
I love when the Book Club meets again to discuss the book. Reading "real" books gets the students much more engaged and I get better insight into where their comprehension skills are.
This 2 pack is now available in my TpT store. Don't forget to pick up the Lucky ABC Order freebie while you are there.
