I recently re-read The One and Only Ivan. What a book!
Ivan, who is full of gorilla-wisdom, says, “Humans waste words. They toss them like banana peels and leave them to rot.”
However, the author, Katherine Applegate, doesn’t waste her words. She carefully crafts them–making them well-suited for copywork.
As I read the book, I jotted some of my favorite quotes in a journal and then turned them into copywork pages for your student. The copywork pages will provide handwriting practice as well as rich discussion points for you and your student.
I recommend reading the text before copying the quotes. Read, discuss, and copy. Don’t miss my discussion guide for The One and Only Ivan found in this post.
