What educators are saying

I used this resource with my 3rd graders! This was the perfect resource to give my students the extra practice they needed to be successful. Thank you!
This was a great resource when studying about Patricia Polacco and why she became an author. I love showing how her book are narratives and how special her experiences are to her.


Patricia Polacco is now one of my favorite author�s to study with my students. Her stories really challenge and inspire young thinkers and learners. This unit encourages students to make connections, think deeply about their characters, and explore the many themes that Patricia incorporates into her stories. I hope that you and your students enjoy reading Patricia�s stories and learning through these activities as much as we did!
