    Ask each child to pick an everyday object. They should illustrate this object (pencil, desk, etc.) and give it a new name. Then vote on which word the class likes best. Use the new word for the remainder of the time you read the novel (the kids love it when you use it).

    This book is great for predicting - each chapter really leaves you hanging - so I always do a few writing activities focused on predicting what will happen next.

    Like Mrs. Granger, put a Word of the Day on the board each morning. Have the students write down the word and definition each day. Use these as your vocabulary study.

    Mailbox published some activities in the Intermediate Aug/Sept 2001 isssue.
