This is a bundle of Gathering Blue Summarizing Think Sheets and answer keys for Lois Lowry's novel, Gathering Blue. It includes chapters 1-4. After or while reading, students write the main points from each chapter in the think sheet. After identifying the main points for a chapter, students will rewrite the main points in paragraph format to create a summary for the chapter. Students can work with the teacher as a class, with a partner(s), or independently on this assignment. Identifying the main points is a reading strategy that will strengthen understanding of each chapter in the novel.
