Tuck Everlasting Day 2



"It's starting to get good!" 
I love overhearing this from my sweet students! And they're right...Tuck Everlasting is getting good! We are starting Chapter 4 tomorrow and we are continuing to do lots of activities that help our comprehension. 

We starting making Character Maps today with Winnie. Each day we'll create a new character map until we have done all the characters in the story. This helps us remember important facts that pertain to certain characters.





 We also added character characteristics to our chart. By the end of today's class, we completely understood the character of Winnie (so far anyways!)


We finished today's class by answering this questions, which leads into tomorrow's reading. :)

  1. Yes! I love hearing my kids enjoying the books we read in class! Especially when they beg me to read another chapter! Your student's character maps are super cute. I love that you are doing one for every character in the story.

  3. I have a group of 7th and 8th graders (special ed) who are in love with Tuck Everlasting. It was one of my favorites when I was younger and I know I am definitely enjoying reliving the story as well. The comprehension level is perfect for them and they are anxiously awaiting what is going to happen between Winnie and Jesse. Your blog posts about this book are wonderful, as they are helping my students to really dive into the book!
