Does anyone have something that can be used for kids who are reading any novel without it being novel specific. I have many novel studies prepared for books that I have used in small groups, but I don't have anything that can be used for just about any book. I have several kids this year who are really self starters and have expressed a desire to read books that I do not have anything for (or can not find anything for) I just need something that would provide a little guidance and give them choices of activities to do while reading and right after. Anything you have that you could share would be helpful!

Thanks so much!

I have several books called Responding to Literature by Scholastic. They have a lot of activities and graphic organizers that you can use with any book.

Also, check out Edhelper's graphic organizer section. They have a lot of cool graphic organizers that can be used with any book. Many of them are free if you don't have an Edhelper account.

I made a generic novel study packet by taking resources from a variety of literature circle resources. Some were from books, but most were from online resources I foudn by Google.

Do you teach 4th grade? Some of these may be too high level, since I collect posts for my 6/7 classes, but the first one listed below would be great for you. You may have already seen some of these previous posts:

Wow! These are great! Thanks so much everyone for your quick responses. There are several things that I can use right away and even more that I can modify for my 4th graders. You all the best!

I have my students fill out a form every time they read their novel. The form is very simple and I only change 1 part of each time depending on what literary element I am focusing on. The chart consists of:
1. prediction
2. vocabulary - interesting or words they don't know
3. strikes - comments
4. wonders - questions
5. literary element section
6. summary

They fill this out for every novel they read for class.

I'm very interested in obtaining a copy of your generic novel study document -- how do I do this? Many thanks!
