So I finally have about 2 minutes to post and share some other ways I used my Interactive Notebook with the novel Hatchet. I used it to teach 5RL1, 5RL2, and 5RL4. These are all 5th grade standards. My students enjoyed the novel. I was able to cover every 5th grade standard for Reading Literature which is a huge relief and now I feel confident in continuing that instruction with partners and independent work for Literature. Yes!
Check it out! I modeled theme, making predictions and inferring, and making meaning of similes and metaphors in text.
