Product Description

Teaching literature doesn't have to be difficult!

The "Great Works Instructional Guides for Literature" series from Shell Education features lessons and activities that work in conjunction with the text to help students learn how to comprehend complex literature. Each book features a detailed explanation of each worksheet section and how to best use this guide in the classroom, as well as notes on standards correlations. An author biography and book summary are also provided before the student worksheets.

Worksheets cover 2-3 chapters at a time, and include exercises focusing on the theme, vocabulary, literary analysis, "close reading," cross-curricular activities, "reader responses" (taught through thoughtful writing assignments), and more. Post-reading activities provide a convenient wrap-up to the unit.

Grades 2-3. 72 classroom-reproducible pages, softcover.

This guide is designed to be used with Lynne Cherry's The Great Kapok Tree, which is not included with this workbook.

Publisher's Description

The author and artist Lynne Cherry journeyed deep into the rain forests of Brazil to write and illustrate her gorgeous picture book The Great Kapok Tree: A Tale of the Amazon Rain Forest (1990). One day, a man exhausts himself trying to chop down a giant kapok tree. While he sleeps, the forest’s residents, including a child from the Yanomamo tribe, whisper in his ear about the importance of trees and how "all living things depend on one another" . . . and it works. Cherry’s lovingly rendered colored pencil and watercolor drawings of all the "wondrous and rare animals" evoke the lush rain forests, as well as stunning world maps bordered by tree porcupines, emerald tree boas, and dozens more fascinating creatures.

Awards: IRA Teacher’s Choice (1991), ABA’s Pick of the Lists, Reading Rainbow Review Book, NSTA-CBC Outstanding Trade Book for Children
