This unit is full of everything you need! It contains main idea, retelling, contraction match up cards, a verb game, vocabulary cards, poetry, adjectives & nouns, bulletin board art work, research project, a writing prompt, and much more! Everything is connected to the common core. This unit is tied to Victoria Kann's new book titled Emeraldalicious. The story is about cleaning up our earth and creating new things out of old things. It can be used for kindergarten, first, or second grade. The Unit is written by Adriana Berry. Visit my website @ mrsadrianaberry.blogspot.com, and please follow me on my tpt store!
