PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a week long book study on the book by Tomie de Paola, The Legend of the Indian Paintbrush.

The story ties in wonderfully with a Native American Unit or in the study of Thanksgiving.

This book study is a reading response study with a kid and teacher friendly rubric for guiding your students to their fullest potential.

There are 6 reading response choices as well as one math tub adding doubles, and a blank canvas to let your students explore like Little Gopher did in the story!

My students LOVE this unit and I have taught it for years.

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  November 7, 2012,  Rebecca D. asked:
I purchased this unit last year, and noticed on your blog that you had updated it. When I went into the one I bought last year, it shows no updates. Is this a totally different one that I need to purchase again? For some reason when I click on the one I own, it just takes me to your store instead of to the product. I'd love to have the updates; please let me know what I need to do!
