The Jungle Book Writing Boxes


In this e-book/downloadable product, you will find Donna Reish and Joshua Reish’s writing boxes for third through eighth grade students—based on the amazing story of Mowgli in Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book.*

From the student Overview Box at the beginning of the project:

“This week will you will be writing a report over given material. That is, you will not find your own
material to write from, but you will use material provided for you in this weekly lesson and take
an S-by-S (Sentence-by-Sentence) Outline over this passage.

Don’t worry! We will use Character Ink’s new Writing Boxes to learn how to write from a source.
It will be fun—and you will be surprised how quickly you learn how to take notes and write.”

This amazing approach takes each sentence from a four paragraph story and breaks those down so that students determine the most important words of each sentence for note taking then write from their notes to come up with four pain-free, creative, fun paragraphs. Each sentence has its own page of writing boxes in which the student finds important words, outlines, writes the sentence, chooses describers and other strong words, embellishes the sentence, and then comes up with an outstanding final sentence.

The product contains over fifty pages of these writing boxes, including suggested answers in an easy-to-follow layout for teachers and parents. Students love our writing boxes—and they yield amazing results for writers of various levels!

*Watch the Character Ink Press store and other vendors for our new five-book composition series about The Jungle Book: Write On, Mowgli (Levels I through V---elementary through high school)!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
