"Stone Fox" Novel Study

Owls in the Family and Stone Fox are two novels that I teach in my grade four classroom year after year. I have never had a student not like either of them and both authors seem to have an amazing ability for engaging readers.

"Stone Fox" by John Reynolds Gardiner is the story of a boy who enters a dog sled race with the goal of winning enough money to save his grandfather's farm. This story will have students begging to keep reading. When I teach this novel I generally try to integrate many different types of reading, such as shared reading, read-aloud, partner based reading and independent reading.
