    1. Having students choose a few new vocabulary words from each chapter. They can then write what they think the word means, other words it reminds them of and then finally what the word means.

    2. They can try an activity called " A Picture is worth a thousand words". Draw two pictures that Sarah may have drawn to send to her brother.

    3. Go to and use the vocabulary words from the story to make a word search.

    4. In Chapter seven, Sarah talks to Maggie about missing her brother and home in Maine. Have the students write a Cinquain about a favorite friend or relative who you miss seeing. When completed, cut the poem out and put on a piece of colored construction paper.

    Those are just a few ideas. Im sure you will come up with several that your students will enjoy.

    Have fun!
