Patricia Polacco is now one of my favorite authorÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s 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 PatriciaÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s stories and learning through these activities as much as we did!
