Who's on Third?

I'm a 3rd grade teacher at a small school in North Carolina and 2015-2016 will be my 7th year in the classroom. I have also taught kinders, 4th, and student taught in 1st grade. I strive to make my classroom as hands-on and "minds-on" as possible through project-based learning, manipulatives, centers, and so create resources to help me achieve that goal. My personal favorite subject to teach is math!

For my book clubs, I have created what I call a "Book About A Book" for each book I use to serve as a reading guide and discussion guide. Each guide divides the novel into sections meant to be read over a week and includes an active reading section to be completed as the student reads (a graphic organizer and sometimes an additional activity) and 5-6 literary analysis/comprehension questions to be completed after reading that section. There is also a section at the beginning to record characters and descriptions and follow up writing prompts.

For Esperanza Rising, this file includes:

Four sections of active reading graphic organizers and comprehension questions
Cover page for booklet
Dictionary of Spanish vocabulary used in the novel
List of English and Spanish vocabulary words by chapter and page number
Final book project ideas
Supplemental background information on the Mexican Revolution and the Great Depression
