PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 155 page unit about community helpers for PreK, Kindergarten, or 1st grade (different leveled materials are included to meet your students' specific needs). In this unit, students learn about the difference between wants and needs, and then they learn about community workers who meet our needs.

Here's what the unit includes:

- Unit goals (essential questions)

I liked most of this unit. I liked how you could use black and white or color options. I didn't use most of the beginning as I thought I could come up with the same stuff on word and not use so much ink but overall was useful.

This was cute but I wouldn't call it a complete unit. I find myself needing to supplement material. Also, I wish this unit had different writing templates to meet the needs of my students. The worksheets, including journals just have a straight line and my students need the 3 lines to write, so I will have to remake those. Overall, it was very cute and will help me plan my unit.
