This is a 4-week (or 16 day) novel study that includes paragraph-level writing activities, discussion prompts for each chapter, a guided note-taking project, a vocabulary journal, and ideas for a book club with further discussion questions about the whole novel. 

For 12 days, your learner will read, take notes, complete sentence and paragraph-level writing activities, and study vocabulary. On day 13, your student will select the prompt for their final project paragraph and brainstorm details for it. On day 14, you will discuss the note-taking project with your learner, and they will also outline and draft a paragraph. On day 15, they will revise and edit their paragraph to produce a polished final draft. On day 16, you can have a themed book club with further discussion questions, snacks, and activities.

We recommend doing 6 to 10 novel studies per year.

About Number the Stars:

"The unforgettable Newbery Medal–winning novel from Lois Lowry. As the German troops begin their campaign to "relocate" all the Jews of Denmark, Annemarie Johansen’s family takes in Annemarie’s best friend, Ellen Rosen, and conceals her as part of the family.

Through the eyes of ten-year-old Annemarie, we watch as the Danish Resistance smuggles almost the entire Jewish population of Denmark, nearly seven thousand people, across the sea to Sweden. The heroism of an entire nation reminds us that there was pride and human decency in the world even during a time of terror and war.

A modern classic of historical fiction, Number the Stars has won generations of fans." - Amazon
