Sideways Stories from Wayside School

written by: Louis Sachar




There was a terrible mistake-Wayside School was built with one classroom on top of another, thirty stories high! (The builder said he was sorry.) Maybe that’s why all kinds of funny things happened at Wayside-especially on the thirteenth floor.






In the Classroom:

  • Varsity Tutors provides a collection of Sideways lesson plans for fun classes to correspond with Wayside School.
  • Warsaw K12 offers a Guided Reading Lesson Plan. 
  • Denilya.net provides 14 days of lesson plans including Reader’s Theater, writing prompts, and much more.
  • Mosswood Connections provides a lesson plan with chapter by chapter discussion questions, vocabulary words, writing prompts, and activities.
