Stargirl, by Jerry Spinelli

Hi everyone! I've been super busy these last few weeks, which is why I haven't posted lately :/ My mom and sister also took me away last weekend to Santa Barbara for my 30th bday!!! So of course I wasn't blogging then :)

Anyway, on to the good stuff. I've been reading the book Stargirl with my English Support class. I've been trying to come up with fun activities for them to do along with reading the novella, and thought I'd share a few in case you're interested in doing a unit on Stargirl.

First, I decided to create more Facebook Profiles for the kids to fill out. They all use Facebook, so why not let them "do it" in school too!?

Then I decided it would also be fun to write a newspaper article about Stargirl, since everyone was talking about her at school. It's kind of a sneaky way to get in some writing too :)

I also created 2 Quizzes so far that could be just a helpful comprehension tool :)

Hope you can use these activities :) Have a great day!
