I love when books have a film adaptation so that way it motivates the kids to read.

As a kid, I watched the movie holes but it was not until I was older I went back and read the book. The book is not super realistic in the fact the there are not really camps like the ones Stanley was sent to that I know of. however the story is relatable to kids. it is a story of friendship, brotherhood, and standing up for what is right that brings the boys in this story together.

I would use this book in my future classroom because students would engage in the idea that this MIGHT happen to them even if it is crazy. They believe this because the author does a good job of balancing the realistic details with the not-so-realistic ones.

This book is about a boy who gets falsely gets sent to a camp where he has to dig holes. This book is Realistic Fiction because it portrays the realities of children's lives today. Children experience mistakes and have to face the consequences of those actions. Also, this book portrays convincing and credible characters by really staying true to their ages throughout the book.

I remember seeing a book like this when I was in fifth grade, so I tried finding it.
Stanley is our protagonist, who was put in a camp for a crime he did not do. However, while he is in that camp, he starts suspecting that the Warden wanted him and his friends to dig holes to find hidden treasure. He also learns about his cursed placed by his great-great-grandfather.

This F novel is a fun read that the students can then follow up within LC. It is about an unlucky teenage boy who goes to a juvenile corrections facility in the desert after being falsely accused of theft. The story goes into his family history, poisonous lizards, and friendship. Following up with the story I would have the students create a book trailer either digitally or comic book version and present it to the class. #ucflae3414f19

YesseniaN UDL: Build fluencies with graduated levels of support for
practice and performance (5.3)
ESOL: I would normally select a different novel for the LC that has the ESOL students but if using the same novel, I would be more involved with explaining the sequence of the story and explaining and symbolism.
You could also have the students complete activities based on the setting of the story or the animals included. activities provided in the link.

Erinehart Hands down one of my top five favorite books! 1mo
DrSpalding This would be a classic literature circle option. You could then use this to compare and contrast the movie with the book to aid comprehension. 13h

Holes by Louis Sachar is a movie I enjoyed movie when I was a child. I didn‘t know until I was in the library that it was a book as well. The book was just as good as the movie which is probably why it won A John Newberry medal. This is another book that I would either do a literature circle for or independent reading for. This book is for 4th – 8th grade.

Alexush The website https://bookunitsteacher.com/wp/?p=816%22%20%5Co%20%22https://bookunitsteacher.com/wp/?p=816 has very cool activities that including rhyming and Learning about similes through this book. The UDL I‘d use for this book is 2.1 because I do think this book offers some good vocabulary . The ESOL strategy I‘d use is 9 teach note taking strategies and having them create a timeline. #ucflae3414f19 1mo
KristenScala Such a good book! I loved the movie on Disney channel when I was little!! 1mo
Tinks Loved the movie, but haven‘t read the book. I now just might do that. Thanks 1mo
DrSpalding So many movies you have seen were first quality children‘s books! Comparing and contrasting books and movies is a helpful way to aid comprehension. Focusing on vocabulary is another way to facilitate comprehension. Well done. 1w

Stanley is sent to a camp for boys as a punishment for an alleged crime. The boys spend each day digging holes. As the story goes Stanley‘s family history is revealed and friendships are formed. Can‘t wait to share this one with my son when he‘s just a little older. #middlegrade

Tamra I keep trying to entice my son into reading this with me - no luck. I‘m just going to have to read it myself because I want to know why the holes! 😆 1mo
Blaire @Tamra go for it! It was a great way for me to break out of a mini reading slump....and no spoilers...but you will find out the why of the holes.😍 1mo
