Moccasin Trail/Book Reports

March 13, 2010 at 3:42 pm 2 comments

My daughter did an extra special job for me to convince me to give her a new book to read. She knows they are there on the shelf waiting for the time to come to study each topic. So I caved in and gave her Moccasin Trail to read a little ahead of schedule.

She could read a novel a day, or two (books not days). I can’t keep up with her. I preread books that go with our school but not always the extra books. (She’s reading The Bobbsey Twins and Rover Boys series online at the moment.) I read Moccasin Trail when we got it last summer. I made up these questions for her back then and we’re just getting to it now.


vocab--she had to write in definitions; I had typed the sentence from the book

The Bourgeways--what did Jim think of them, how did his attitude change, and a comprehension question


John 10:10 and relating it to the book and to the story of Joseph

Here’s the download link for these pages: Moccasin Trail

I don’t read books aloud to my daughter. She can’t stand waiting that long to finish a book. She sits down to start a book and if she can help it, doesn’t get up until she’s finished the book. She’s the quiet type so I like giving her something to write to respond to a book to help start a discussion about it.

Here’s my plain old book report form I give her when I don’t have anything else. She reads too many books to do bigger things for each one. This would work for any novel.

Sometimes we do lapbook type book reports you can see those at the following links:

Because of Winn Dixie

True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle

The Tale of Despereaux

All of those downloads can be found on the Free Stuff! page

    Thank you for sharing these books! My daughters read voraciously and I am constantly seeking good books for them to read. I know my nine-year-old will love Moccasin Trail!

    Moccasin Trail is an excellent book! And it’s especially good for TCKs. I loved the whole cultural thing — was he Indian or Anglo? Sprite and I could really relate to the struggle.
