This unit was created for my first grade class. I got so stressed that I didn't have books and if I did they weren't very thoughtful. I created Dive into Reading so that I could have books that went with the theme of the month and to allow the students to get those rich filled content. It will be a slow process to create these so please bear with me as I create them. As of right now (November 24th), I am posting the first 3 weeks of December. By November 25th, I will post the last week. January's entire unit will be posted around December 23rd.
