This novel unit for Ready, Freddy! #20 Apple Orchard Race by Abby Klein makes literature circles or book clubs a breeze for lower grades. Daily comprehension practice requires students to focus on text analysis and responding to literature, and the vocabulary focus builds word knowledge and academic vocabulary.
This no-fluff Apple Orchard Race novel study engages students, but it doesn't overwhelm your readers with countless chapter questions that just require them to regurgitate the text.
Standards-aligned & perfect for novel studies, small group book clubs or lit circles, independent reading, or as a way to monitor and teach during your read aloud.
