This is a close reading guide to the book Sun and Spoon by Kevin Henkes. It is a beautiful book that describes a boy's journey to find closure after his grandmother's death in the form of something by which to remember her.
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 three as well as grade four, and it includes everything you need!
