About the Novel:
A dramatic and fascinating story of friendship! Jesse Aarons is a fourth grader who loves to run. Once the fastest and best runner at Lark Creek Elementary School in Virginia, until he was challenged by a girl—Leslie Burke. Leslie and her parents were new to this community, and they soon became best friends; their relationship was a strong one. Then, Leslie gets a great idea to create Terabithia, a secret place in the woods only for themselves. One day, while Jesse is not there, Leslie tries to cross the bridge to Terebithia, but falls in and drowns. When Jesse finds out, he is devastated. Soon after, the Burke family moves away, but Jesse believes that she has taught him something.

a great resource to use with novel study
Very engaging resource for our novel study!
My students really enjoyed this unit!
This was an excellent guide for my Bridge to Terabithia lit circles. A variety of activities allowed me to engage the students in ways best suited to their learning.
This is a great resource for the summer reading camp that I'm doing.
Great resource to use with the book. !
It is so wonderful to be able to find this. It makes my job so much easier to have something so creative at my fingertips. This was rigorous and enjoyable to complete as we read one of our favorite books!
Just what I was looking for! Excellent resource! Thank you!
I loved this resource... great critical thinking questions.
Great resource to use with the book!
I love the before and after tasks
Very straight forward & a nice addition to my resources for this novel.
I really liked this product. Solely due to my needs, I felt the "before reading" activities were a little more difficult so I kept it to the after reading activities. I think I could use the before reading activities with a higher class like 6th graders - I have a 4/5 combo. Otherwise, a great resource - thank you!
Good resource for a great book!
Thanks for the great resource to help study this novel!
"Love it! Much better than literature cards I have used in the past with this book."
"This was awesome. Well designed and thought-out. Thanks!"
Great resource, thanks for this product.
Great job! Thank you.
So helpful for my first literature circle.
I found these resources invaluable in my classroom! Both the before reading and after reading. As we read the book over a term, the children quite enjoyed the challenge of the quiz at the end to see how many of them remembered all of the answers. :) The winners of the quiz were very pleased with themselves. Thank you for a really useful resource!

The second work booklet I have purchased, this style is great for whole class and individual work. There is enough work to last terms! Thanks again
This was a life saver for my classroom reader this quarter. I loved the vocabulary and the before reading and after reading worksheets.
