Bink and Gollie, by Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee, have to be the most appealing characters in children's literature. While total opposites, they can teach our children so much about friendship. In the first book, Bink and Gollie, children read three short stories: Don't You Need a New Pair of Socks, P.S. I'll Be Back Soon, and Give a Fish a Home. In this unit study, you will find comprehension questions (inferential and concrete), vocabulary studies, character studies, summary activities, a narrative writing, and an expository writing piece for each short story in the book. This unit study can be used for guided reading, independent reading, or literature circles (I have used portions for homework as well). Bink and Gollie has a lexile level of 420 and is a Fountas and Pinnell level K. This unit study satisfies RL.1 and 2 CCSS and W.1 and 2 CCSS. I have used this unit with success from gifted grade one through grade four (for students reading with extra support). It is a versatile unit, as the stories are funny and appealing to children of all ages (my high school readers have been known to beg for Bink and Gollie read-alouds).
