Relates well to the new Common Core Standards

This teacher's guide relates very well to the new Common Core Standards that are currently being adopted by California schools. The vocabulary puzzles were a favorite with my third graders, and it was exciting to hear the students actually cheer when I passed out their homework!

There have been many teacher guides that accompany children's novels, however the teacher's guide that goes with Portia's Incredible Journey will fast become a teacher's best friend. Emma Price has thoroughly researched and included meaningful activities in her 61 page teacher's guide. She has included various critical thinking level questions to use before, during and after reading that will motivate students to read and the guide is very convenient for teachers to use.
