I didn’t read very many chapter books as a child. In elementary school we didn’t have read-alouds. The closest we ever came to being read to was an Encyclopedia Brown Mystery a few times a week in 5th grade. We went to the library at school every two weeks, but there was never any direction given about what to read. Often those books sat in our desks and we never touched them. Sixth grade was my favorite year, and the year I learned the most. But we didn’t read a single book as a class. We didn’t have book reports, and the only things we read were nonfiction.
Seventh and eighth grades were wonderful. I went to a prep school and we read a lot! I fell in love with books in 7th grade. I remember reading The Giver and a few other books. We read a lot in high school as well. When it came to reading with AJ, I had a lot of books that I wanted to read with her in her high school years, but I had no clue what to read with her before that.
Since she is a reluctant reader I tried to find books that were fun, classics, or books that I had always wanted to read. One of those books is Pippi Longstocking.
The story of Pippi Longstocking always intrigued me, so I thought it would be fun for AJ to read. After looking all over though, I couldn’t find a good literature study for Pippi Longstocking. I decided to make one for AJ. I took it farther than just comprehension questions. It includes sequencing, true false questions, short answer, characterization, and more.
If you read one chapter a day the study will last 12 days. We do a 4 day school week so we stretched it over three weeks.
