The Gold of Black Rock Hill is a decodable chapter book from the Simple Words chapter books set written by Cigdem Knebel. I have been granted permission by the author to create comprehensive literature guides to accompany Simple Words Chapter Books. This is the first literature guide.

You will need to order the books as a separate purchase in order to use this literature guide. You may visit The Literacy Nest online store to find them or go the Simple Words Books site.

This literature guide is broken into three parts: Vocabulary, Phonics and Spelling, and Reading Comprehension/Writing Practice. It contains everything you need to successfully teach with The Gold of Black Rock Hill as a whole class, small reading groups, 1:1 or distance learning.

  • Please download the preview file to get a snapshot of some pages that are included.
  • I will be creating more literature guides over time. It is a lengthy project. Thank you for your patience.


  • You can send copies of this resource for you students to type answers into the provided text boxes when they are using it with Google Classroom.
  • Instructions and the link to the digital versions are in a separate file in this Zipped file.
