I am so impressed. I can't believe how many hours of loving labor went into this unit---and to give it away free is awesome and I thank you. I wish I had your books as resources while I was still teaching, as I love the Magic Tree House Books. I run a tutoring service, so will still be able to use them. Thank you so much
On  April 23, 2013Gay Miller answered:
I decided to give away this unit because it has always been a favorite of all the fourth grade classes in our school. The audio for this book is terrific. It includes the songs which make teaching figurative language fun. Enjoy ;>)

Thank you!! The Dragonslayers is always a favorite of our fourth graders. Be sure to use the audiobook. I contains different voices for each character and all the songs are included. Using the tape is a great way to teach figurative language.
