What goes best with the book Dragons Love Tacos? Well of course TACOS!
Nothing brings out a reluctant reader or writer like making the topic about food! Students will enjoy classroom recipes from this unit that have a literature and writing connection. You do not have to have specific books to compete the recipes but suggestions are give for each recipe - most snacks lead to other books if needed.
