I have some exciting news to share with you, my dear teachers!
My newest hot-off-the-press novel study is DONE!
Have you ever read the book No Talking by Andrew Clements?
It's a funny and relatable story about a group of 5th graders who go head-to-head in a battle to see who (girls or boys) can speak the fewest amount of words in two days. In the end, they learn about the importance of thinking before you speak. And doesn't every upper elementary class need to learn that lesson? ;)
This MEGA packet is the perfect supplement to a study of the book, whether you're doing it as a whole-class, a small group (i.e. reading groups or literature circles), or as an individual project.
It includes over 130 pages of activities!
