Product Description
"Absolutely Almost" by Lisa Graff is a book about embracing our differences that your students will love! The main character, Albie, never quite seems to match up to his peers. His struggles and life lessons will surely encourage valuable class discussions about valuing and understanding the differences in ourselves and in others.

This novel study includes 16 pages of student work, with each page aligned to CCSS standards for 4th, 5th, and 6th grades. Each page includes the reading assignment (~ 20 or so pages), the standards covered, and a series of text-dependent questions. These questions require students to exercise close reading, evidence-based responses, supporting their thinking, and formulating opinions and individual analyses. Pre- and post- reading journal entries and a theme analysis page support thinking before and after reading this engaging story.

Use this novel study for guided reading, whole-class lessons, book clubs, literature circles, independent reading, and even homework! A detailed answer key keeps you ahead of the game and makes assessing students' understanding a cinch - especially when balancing multiple reading groups and texts!
