PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a close reading guide to the book Counting by 7's by Holly Sloan. It is a beautiful book in which Willow Chance, a 12-year-old genius, who is obsessed with plants, diagnosing medical conditions, and the number seven, feels that she is an outsider. After an unthinkable tragedy, Willow meets an unlikely cast of characters and is surprised to find out that it is with them that she truly belongs.

As close reading is such an important part of the Common Core, students need to be taught to be analytic as they read texts. This unit includes close reading sections, chapter-by-chapter vocabulary, a chapter-by-chapter summary, and discussion questions (for each chapter). I have used this unit with gifted grade four all the way through grade 8. I have used this unit in special education as well as regular education classrooms, and it has been successful across the board. It includes everything you need! There are chapter summaries, vocabulary activities, class discussion questions, and close reading selections for each chapter. I have used the questions for homework, classwork, or just as a springboard for class discussions and literature circles. Please feel free to ask questions before your purchase. AND...don't forget to leave feedback. It's like free TPT money!
