When a student says, "I can't do it!" Do you encourage by saying, "Not yet, but you will!"? If so, you're going to love Ashley Spires' book, The Thing Lou Couldn't Do! It's a story about facing our fears when we encounter new things in life!

In this PDF, you'll receive:

-Two versions of a K-1 response page. Your little ones will make a personal "not yet" list of things they can't do YET... but want to conquer! [One version has a New Year's theme (any year will work) ... but the other version will work on any day of the year. It's perfect for back to school time, too!]

-Two versions of a crossword puzzle with seven goal-setting words and the answer keys for 2nd-4th grade students.

- A printable with bookmarks, again - two different versions are included!

I hope your students love this book as much as we did!
