The Nowhere Emporium by Ross MacKenzie - Unit of Work

You will get files in a Word document as well as PDF format so it is easily editable. This will save you hours of work!

This resource contains a range of vocabulary and quality discussion questions for each section of the novel. It also includes a choice of follow-up tasks children could complete as they read the book. It is designed to last 7 weeks, however it can be adapted to suit your learners.

I have used it in my classroom following the Highland Literacy Project’s way of organising reading in the upper primary classroom. Children engage in reading 3 times per week:
Session 1 - Pupils discuss the text, read the set pages independently and look up new vocabulary from the pages they have read.
Session 2 - Pupils discuss the pages read with their group and the teacher.
Session 3 - Pupils complete a follow-up task based on their book to demonstrate further understanding.

When I have used this, I have printed a few pages of the document to share between pupils in the reading group. For Week 1, Session 1 - pupils use page 1 of the document. For Week 1, Session 2 - pupils use page 2 of the document. For Week 1, Session 3 - pupils have completed follow-up tasks in their jotters.

I hope you find this resource useful, however you choose to use it!
