There’s a huge world for students in grades PK–K to explore, and All Around the Neighborhood provides the perfect place for them to start. Teachers use the reproducible building fronts and vehicles to create a familiar neighborhood setting, then let students' imaginations do the rest. Students add buildings from their own homes to fire stations to construction sites. This 176-page book teaches social awareness in conjunction with a variety of concepts and vocabulary words that draw upon students' interests. It includes 10 mini-books, 7 file-folder games, more than 60 reproducible patterns, more than 80 literature links, and a wealth of cross-curricular activities that reinforce each new concept. The book supports NCSS and NAEYC standards.

The first chapter of the book is dedicated to the history of the medium and runs from the earliest days of comic books through the growing popularity of graphic novels. It includes profiles of early creators and the significance of certain moments throughout the history that chart the evolution of graphic literature from superheroes to award-winning novels like Maus. Chapters 2-8 focus on different genres and include an analysis and lessons for 1-2 different novels, creator profiles, assignments, ways to incorporate different media in connection with each book, chapter summaries, discussion questions, and essay topics.

In this State Standards-aligned Literature Kit™, we divide the novel by chapters or sections and feature reading comprehension and vocabulary questions. In every chapter, we include Before You Read and After You Read questions. The Before You Read activities prepare students for reading by setting a purpose for reading. They stimulate background knowledge and experience, and guide students to make connections between what they know and what they will learn. The After You Read activities check students' comprehension and extend their learning. Students are asked to give thoughtful consideration of the text through creative and evaluative short-answer questions and journal prompts. Also included are writing tasks, graphic organizers, comprehension quiz, test prep, word search, and crossword to further develop students' critical thinking and writing skills, and analysis of the text. About the Novel: A lively adventure story, teeming with suspense and humor, and set in the vivid landscapes of ancient Egypt and modern-day California! April Hall is not your typical sixth grade student, and when she converts a deserted storage yard into the land of Egypt. Egypt is owned by the mysterious Professor, who turns a blind eye to the activities going on. Limited only by their vivid imaginations, April and Melanie create the Egypt Game, which grows more and more complex and interesting. At the novel’s conclusion, it is the Professor, himself, who comes to the rescue, saving April and Egypt itself. In the process, the Professor reveals his colorful past to the Gang and presents them with their own personal keys to the land of Egypt.
