Rascal
Rascal - Sterling North,John Schoenherr

Guided Reading: V

Lexile Measure: 1140L

 

Rascal is only a baby when young Sterling brings him home. He and the mischievous raccoon are best friends for a perfect year of adventure. Since this is a chapter book, I think good activities for this book could include a Lapbook or a Jacket Book. This book could also could be a good choice for literature circles.

Sounder
Sounder - James B. Barkley Sr.,William H. Armstrong

Reading level and Leveling System:

Guided Reading:T

Lexile Measure: 900L

 

 

An African American boy and his family rarely have enough to eat. Each night, the boy's father takes their dog, Sounder, out to look for food. The man grows more desperate by the day. When food suddenly appears on the table one morning, it seems like a blessing. But the sheriff and his deputies are not far behind. The ever-loyal Sounder remains determined to help the family he loves as hard times bear down. A Book Jacket project is a great way to entice other students to read a book. Using this activity allows students to entice other readers by showing them highlights by using words and pictures but being careful to not give away the entire plot.

An activity to go along with this book for practicing writing skills could include journal entries such as:

  • A time when you felt especially lonely
    • Describe your local public or school library.  What does it look like?  What’s good about it?  What’s bad?
      • Your biggest sadness
      • This activity will help students make text to self connections.

Little House on the Prairie
Little House on the Prairie - Garth Williams,Laura Ingalls Wilder

Reading level and Leveling System:

Guided Reading: Q

Lexile Measure: 760L

 

This book was my first favorite book during elementary school. Laura Ingalls and her family are heading to Kansas. Leaving behind their home in the Big Woods of Wisconsin, they travel by covered wagon until they find the perfect spot to build a little house on the prairie. The family must soon get to work, farming and hunting and gathering food for themselves and for their livestock. Along with the new adventures in the land it also has it dangers, from wolves to Indians. Will the Ingalls move from this land too? This book could be used while discussing pioneers or about traveling on a wagon train. A great activity for this book would be a Lapbook. A file folder is folded and turned into a book with a cover that can be decorated with a picture that describes the book. On the inside of the file folder, it includes information from the book. Including the characters, conflicts, the climax, how the conflict was resolved, and new unknown vocabulary words.
