The One and Only Ivan is an amazing book that is based on a true story and Kate DiCamillo tells it beautifully...but get your tissues ready because it is a tear jerker.
This The One and Only Ivan Novel Study is designed to be easy-to-implement and focuses on helping students enjoy the story instead of spending hours trudging through long lists of daily chapter comprehension questions.
Each day's reading is purposefully paired with a core comprehension skill to get students to apply their understanding of the text and their own thinking to a single question. This keeps kids eager to read and helps builds transferrable skills that carry with them beyond the book.
