You're welcome. I have just finished revising this unit. As soon as my proofreader goes through it, I will upload and send out a notice. I have added skills and more constructive response questions. It should be out in the next week or two.

I like your materials and have purchased others of yours, I had downloaded them when they were free and like the updates you have made.
I am working on getting all my units up to the same standard. I plan to teach Number the Stars to my students after we finish The City of Ember. I will be adding skill lessons and some higher level questions to this unit before I teach it again. Please look for a notice when I get it finished. You will be able to download the revised version.
The following units are at the same or higher standard as The Cay. Some teachers have labeled these as "Monday Morning Ready."
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
How to Eat Fried Worms
The City of Ember
Where the Red Fern Grows
The Whipping Boy
A Cricket in Times Square
The Dark as Rising

Great product! Would like to see more higher order questions.
Thank you so much. This is the new version that I just completed earlier in the week. I just added all the constructive response questions and organizers. I'm glad you think they are going to be helpful. Enjoy!!
I included answer keys at the end of the unit. Be sure your entire unit printed. On page 54 you will find the answer key for the two vocabulary practice pages and the vocabulary test. On page 55 you will find the answer keys to all the multiple choice comprehension questions. On pages 56-58 you will find the answers to the constructive response questions. E-mail me at email@example.com if you continue to have problems.

This unit is described as being 51 pages. The preview was 51 pages, but the actual download that I purchased is only 37 pages. Is there something that I am missing or is it all the same?
Thank you for calling this to my attention. For some reason the newer version did not upload to the TPT site. It is there now. Please download it again. The full version with the constructive response questions is now on the site.
