I absolutely love these literature units! Thank you for organizing such high quality teaching resources!
I'm a big fan of your literature units and I find them extremely helpful and fun to use with my students. I wish you would include more titles, like Gregor the Overlander and The Phantom Tollbooth. Thanks!
"I LOVE your literature units! I'm using "The Great Gilly Hopkins" right now and am going to use this one next. Thank you!"
Another great unit! My students and I enjoyed this one.
This unit was a lifesaver. I unexpectedly had to take a week off of school and used this to keep my students reading in my absence. When I came back (half way through their reading of the novel) they were so engaged with the novel. I now make a point to incorporate Number the Stars in my curriculum each year. I highly recommend this thorough, rigorous, thoughtful product to other ELA/Reading teachers.
