Socks is the story of a cat named "Socks" who suddenly has his world turned upside down with the arrival of a baby in the house. Mayhem and mischief are soon to follow with this classic tale of pet/baby rivalry. Our unit provides teachers with a highly structured format for teaching language arts as students develop a love for reading longer materials like novels. Various areas such as reading comprehension, vocabulary development, spelling, grammar, and writing are all entwined in this integrated approach eliminating the need for teaching these skills separately. This Novel Study provides a teacher and student section with a variety of activities, chapter questions, crossword and word search to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
