Call of the Wild Literature Lapbook

Alyssa's new independent reading chapter book for the month is titled, The Call of the Wild. She is working through The Call of the Wild Literature Unit Study and Lapbook created by Erica at Confessions of a Homeschooler. We are using a different version of the book, but it still works fine even though the lapbook mini-books do not correspond exactly with our book version. Erica recommends purchasing the Classic Starts version of the book.

Alyssa reads the chapters independently and completes the corresponding lapbook pieces for each chapter. She reads 1-2 chapters each day. The lapbook also includes book reports. Before beginning the book, Alyssa completed the Predictions page based on the cover, title, author bio, and summary. We plan on watching the movie after she reads the book so that she can compare and contrast the similarities and differences between the movie and the book. Erica provides the user with comprehension questions that are answered in the form of mini-books for the lapbook. She also includes answers to the questions and a lapbook video tutorial on her blog.

You can see a calendar in the back pocket. Alyssa created a Reading schedule for her book using our Super Teacher Worksheets subscription. She uses it to track her monthly reading for her Independent Reading Projects. You can read about how we made and used the Reading calendar by clicking on the previous link. Alyssa really likes reading this story and completing the lapbook activities.
