My Teacher is an Alien Reading  - Literature Unit - Comprehension Guide

My Teacher is an Alien Reading - Literature Unit - Comprehension Guide

My Teacher is an Alien is a book by Bruce Coville. This book is at a 5.3 reading level, based off the Accelerated Reader scale. This product took me weeks to finish. Included in this document are 36 pages: 4 pages for each of the six sections plus more! There are pre-reading and post reading activities as well. Each section includes: 2 pages of comprehension questions, 1 page of vocabulary work (presented in several different ways), and 1 page with cocurricular objective (language elements, writing, etc) or cross-curricular objective (math, art, social studies, music, etc). Also included: 4-page teacher's key! Each comprehension question includes the page number where the answer can be found based on the 2005 Scholastic Edition. At the end of this unit, I had my small group create an electronic timeline using and online program called biteslide.com. It is similar to PowerPoint, but has an easier process for finding and placing pictures. This group easily retold the ENTIRE story through their presentation. Enjoy! Have a wonderful week!
