**Birdie’s Lighthouse

You don’t need to use these books, but if you do the kids will have a much clearer understanding of the lighthouse keeper’s life. Included is a section pertaining to these two trade books with comprehension questions for each book. Kids compare and contrast the two main characters and write a diary entry about a lighthouse keeper’s day.

Please note: These books are NOT included in the resource and must be obtained by the teacher from a book store or library.

See the preview for a better look. If you have any questions, ask before you purchase. I am happy to help you.

This is a print-and-go resource.

Customer Tips:
Save $$$.
Did you know that Teachers Pay Teachers gives TpT credits, saving $$$ on future purchases, when you purchase a product and leave feedback?
You get one TpT Credit for every $ you spend on TpT--but only when you leave a fair rating and a comment. TpT rounds up for you, too! If you provide fair feedback on a $4.75 item, you will earn 5 credits. Every 100 credits is worth $5 that you can apply towards future TpT purchases, but there is no need to wait until you have 100 to redeem them. 50 credits is worth $2.50, for example. It’s a great deal and a great way to save $$$. It’s a win, win. You save money and I get feedback to help me determine which products are most valuable for your classroom. Then I can create more of what you need.

How to get TPT credit to use on your future purchases: 

• Please go to your My Purchases page (you may need to login). Beside each purchase you'll see a Provide Feedback button. Simply click it and you will be taken to a page where you can give a quick rating and leave a short comment for the product. TpT will issue you credit and keep track of the credits you earn.

• Look for the green star next to my store logo and click it to become a follower. You will be the first to know about my product discounts, new product launches and freebies.
