The Cay Unit 1, is a 50 page bundle that allows students to hone in on many reading skills, but will also allows students to be creative when responding to questions and constructing writing tasks.
It begins with the background to the story and the setting, the unit then goes to focus on many reading skills such as: identifying descriptive and sensory details, identifying conflict and parts of plot, examining characters and their traits, citing evidence, and etc.
I have listed the 6th grade standards, but the 5th, 7th, and 8th grade Common Core Standards will work with this unit very similarly.
It includes the following:
1.Worksheets for selected chapters (Dialect, Character Traits, Parts of Plot, Conflict, Point of View, Descriptive and Sensory Language)
2.Vocabulary for each chapter- Term and definition
3.Ideas for culminating/ summative activities, once finished with novel.
*I will be creating a bundle for the culminating activities/summative assessment/project too; it will be coming out soon.
