Holes Novel Study
This is a complete novel study using the book Holes. The entire unit focuses on the Common Core Standards and shift to getting students to use evidence from the text to answer and defend their responses. The structure of my class was a vocabulary mini-lesson, mini-lesson connected to a skill, whole class and independent reading connected to the text. LESSON PLANS ARE IN WORD (AND PDF) FORMAT. This perfect for teachers who like to tweak class activities to the needs of their individual classes. Please note restrictions on commercial use.

The Unit Includes:
25 Original Vocabulary Mini-lessons
24 Lessons (Questions from the chapters, Exit Ticket, Homework)
22 Mini-lessons aligned to skills from the text
4 Extension Activities (Create a Creature, Wanted Ads, Character Traits, Alternative Ending)
Graphic Organizers
1 Character Study Mini-Book (9 pages) for students to track characters
