Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech. Low Prep and Stress-Free. This unit includes vocabulary terms, poetry, author biography research, themes, character traits, one-sentence chapter summaries, and note taking activities. A great variety of activities to keep your students engaged! This is a complete unit, but can be added to the materials you already have on hand. I use this INSTEAD of multiple choice comprehension tests and my students are super excited about reading time now!
In this Common Core aligned set there are 16 different examples of figurative language from the novel Walk Two Moons. Students read the included directions and record their answers on the recording sheet provided. They can work with a small group, a partner, or individually to reinforce figurative language skills taught in class, with or without the novel.
