I recently read Holes by Louis Sachar to my 4th graders. Even though most of them had already seen the movie this is the book they picked as a class to read. Below is a list of things we did as we read and after watching the movie.
- Comprehension quizzes throughout the book.
- Sequence of Events for the Curse (not whole book, just curse)
- Compare Characters
- Differences between the movie and book
Essay - Which did you like more, the movie or the book? Why?

**If you watch the movie with your class be aware that there are a few cuss words. I sent home permission forms for the movie.**
