Item description

Take your weekend back with this print and go resource! Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is absolutely one of my favorite books to teach because Grace Lin has filled it full of figurative language and captivating characters! It also hits so many standards we need to teach with its culture, fantasy, and folktales! In this novel study, the comprehension and vocabulary pages are broken up into sections with 3 chapters in each section. Students will also have the opportunity to practice reading, literacy, writing, and language skills which can be assigned depending on the needs of your students and the concepts you are most in need of reinforcing. This novel study works well in a Daily 5/CAFE setting, as a literature circle reading group log, as well as in a traditionally structured reading class.
