PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Have you read John, Paul, George & Ben by Lane Smith? It is soooooo cute!' We are suppose to use more non-fiction books. Appropriate ones for first graders are so hard to find. Well, this is not a non-fiction book entirely, but it is filled with facts about these men. I know it's says second through fifth grade. But, there are a TON of fun things to do with your kids.
I have made up a unit based on this book. There are plenty of the ELA Common Core Standards addressed in this unit.

Thank you so much for your feedback. I really appreciate it. I have changed the unit's name. I did not realize I had math on the title. I also added in two activities. I hope you enjoy them.
