A Literary Curriculum Planning Sequence for A Literary Leaf for The Tiger Rising

Subscribers Only

KS: Literary Leaves, LKS2 / UKS2, Upper KS2

Year Group: Year 5, Year 6

Author(s): Kate DiCamillo

Overview and Outcomes:

This is a 18 session Literary Leaf for Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo and the poem The Tyger by William Blake which children use to compare the lanaguage used around tigers. Children explore language - literal and figuarative - within the text and explore how to infer deeply around a charater's intentions.

Synopsis of Text:

We chose this book for a literary leaf as it is a a wonderful narrative with themes about friendship and trust that can be explored. Walking through the misty Florida woods one morning, twelve-year-old Rob Horton is stunned to encounter a tiger - a real-life, very large tiger - pacing back and forth in a cage. What’s more, on the same extraordinary day, he meets Sistine Bailey, a girl who shows her feelings as readily as Rob hides his. As they learn to trust each other, and ultimately, to be friends, Rob and Sistine prove that some things - like memories, and heartaches, and tigers - can’t be locked up forever.
