I have been an elementary classroom teacher for 17 years. I have taught this novel study many times to my 3rd graders in Reading.
Students will be responsible for reading the chapters at home ahead of class time for the week to be prepared for class discussion and activities. Please see the above schedule. 
Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing book by Judy Blume pencil and paper novel study sheets that I upload each week in the classroom
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Please be aware that we will discuss what the time period was like that the story is set in. It is set in the 1970s New York when life was a lot different. We will also read about and discuss sibling rivalry and arguments, etc.
