This ready-to-use sixteen page packet is designed for use with students as they read Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. Included is an 8-page student booklet (plus answer key) that divides the text into two reading assignments with activities to go with each. Also, there is a bookmark for students’ use as they keep track of vocabulary words while reading the book and a comprehension test (along with the key) to give to students following completion of the assignments and discussions.

Sadako and The Thousand Paper Cranes is divided into two reading assignments of approximately 25 pages each. Each assignment is followed by questions and tasks to go with the reading. These questions and tasks reinforce balanced literacy skills which include comprehension, vocabulary, visualization, summarizing, point-of-view, and recognizing the author’s purpose. The packet gives students critical practice in writing to explain their thinking and to demonstrate their understanding.

The student booklet is designed for independent work so that students can work on this in class while the teacher is meeting with another group. In my classroom students were responsible for completing one reading assignment with the accompanying questions each week. I gave them three, 40 minute periods per week to complete one assignment. They would then meet once a week with me (or an aide or a parent), along with the other students reading the same book (we called this a “bookclub” meeting) to discuss the book and review the assignments. Customize the use of this packet as you wish. What worked for me, may not be what works best for you. For example, instead of using this as class work, the packet could also be used as homework.

SADAKO AND THE THOUSAND PAPER CRANES in a nutshell:

This is the true story of eleven year old Sadako who lived in Japan in the 1940’s and ‘50’s. She seemed to be a typical, energetic girl. She loved to run, she believed in good luck charms, and she had big plans for her future. All that changed when she found she had leukemia, “the atom bomb disease”. This is a touching story which gives the reader a window on Japanese traditions, illustrates the importance of family and friends, and provides much for group discussions.

Appropriate for students in grades 4-6. Reading level approximately 5th grade
