I have begun to use this in one of my guided reading groups, and it is going great! The work is right at their level and they LOVE the story!
We have our students split into 6 different guided reading groups (I combine with another self-contained class for guided reading). Our groups range from students working on learning letters to those reading at a low third grade level. This packet is appropriate for most of my students reading at a mid 1st-3rd grade level.
For each chapter in the book, this packet provided a worksheet to work on vocabulary (see below). Kids have to write what they think the word means, what the dictionary says, and use it in a sentence.
