Get ready to crack open some great fiction and non-fiction picture books for your integrated spring study of all things egg-related! This resource was designed to compliment your primary grade life cycle or holiday-themed unit, and includes two different reading and writing booklets that will engage and excite your students. You can use them as literacy station choices or as part of a whole-group lesson. I plan to incorporate them into my ELA instruction throughout the month of April. Please take a peek at the thorough preview to see the different literacy skills covered.
