In this classic, Anne Shirley is grown up and starting out on her own life. She has begun a new job as a teacher at
Avonlea School, and also started the Avonlea Village Improvement Society with her friends Dian, and Gilbert whom you
will recall. While many things have changed, Anne is still just as prone to adventure as she ever was! I hope you
this classic as much as I did!
This accompanying unit study is meant to be used with the Classic Starts Anne of Avonlea version as retold from the Mark Twain original. The Classic Start versions are
find them a little easier for younger readers, but you could certainly use this unit study with the original version
you have an older student. The lapbook chapters will correlate with the Classic Starts edition, but the concepts are
same, so you should be able to complete the units using any version you choose.

As you read through the book, each chapter has a mini-book with comprehension questions for your student to complete.
This unit has 19 Chapters with accompanying mini-books plus a vocabulary mini-book full of terms to learn throughout
What age is this unit recommended for?
I normally recommend my literature units for elementary level readers grades 1-5. You can assign them out individually
to your student so they read on their own, then complete the mini-book assignment for each chapter. There are writing
assignments for each chapter as your students answer comprehension questions from the reading. So you’ll just want to
make sure they’re comfortable writing.
Or you can read it together as a group if you have younger readers, then have them complete the mini-book assignments
when you’re done with each chapter.
How long does the literature unit take?
That really depends on your child’s reading speed, and how many chapters there are in the book! And how fast your
reads through the chapters as well.
Each one varies in length, and you can easily modify these units to fit your schedule. So for example, you can assign
one chapter per day plus the associated mini-book assignments, or you can have them do 2-3/week. It’s totally up to
your schedule, and your student.
What’s included in the Unit Study?
Each unit includes everything you need to complete the lapbook with the exception of the book itself and the file
The download includes a teacher’s manual with the daily reading assignments, along with the comprehension questions
answers for each chapter. This makes it much easier for you to help your students even if you haven’t read the book
There is also one mini-book for each chapter in the book. Inside your student will answer a comprehension question
relates directly to the chapter they’ve just read. Some assignments include vocabulary words, mapping the voyage, and
completing the mini-reports. Then on the backside of the lapbook, we added a pocket to the backside where we store the
reports and story timeline.
For older students:
This unit includes 5 reports that your students can complete. If you have older readers, have them do these reports to
make the unit a bit more challenging. If you have younger readers, you might prefer to ask the questions verbally so
they aren’t having to write a report, or skip them all together. It’s totally up to you!
The reports include:
- Story Facts (Setting, Main Plot, Main Characters)
- Protagonist vs. Antagonist
- Prediction Sheet
- My Book Report
- Book vs. Movie
- Storyboard timeline
