*Please note: This resource includes links to YouTube videos, so ensure you and your students have access to YouTube before purchasing. Although great care has been taken to ensure all content is appropriate for the stated grade levels, each classroom is unique and it is recommended that teachers review all content prior to use. I recommend embedding the videos to avoid ads and other content that may be inappropriate. Instructions for embedding the videos are included and it should only take a few minutes. Also, keep in mind that any links to third-party content may be changed or removed by the content owner. All links are reviewed regularly; however, if you find a broken link, please let me know so I can update the resource accordingly.
