The Witches Reading - Comprehension Guide - Literature UnitQuick View

The Witches Reading - Comprehension Guide - Literature Unit

The Witches is a book by Roald Dahl. This book is at a 4.7 reading level, based off the Accelerated Reader scale. Teacher duration I listed as 2 weeks, but it really depends on your students and how in-depth you have them study the book. I am using this in a 5th grade classroom, but would easily work for 4th and perhaps 6th grade. This product will save you HOURS if not DAYS of time. Included in this document are 62 pages. I have divided the book into 11 sections. There are 8-10 comprehension questions and a vocabulary page for each section. In addition, excluding the 1st and 11th section, each section has a co-curricular or cross-curricular activity (including math, writing, poetry, language, art, technology). There are 2 pre-reading activities and 4 post-reading activities as well. Also included: 10-page teacher's key! Each comprehension question includes the page number where the answer can be found (based off the Scholastic 2007 edition, blue cover). My students, while finding some parts of the book disturbing, are really enjoying this. I am excited to share this with you and hope you will notify me if you find any mistakes so that I may fix them. I appreciate your input! Have a wonderful week! Susanna Yust 5th Grade Please be aware of what is appropriate for your students. Post-reading Activity #3 is over the Salem Witch Trials. I teach 5th grade and this ties in with our social studies unit, but do some research before you assign this activity. You may also want to screen the websites and give them one specific one where they can find the information.
