What other teachers are saying about this literature unit
♥ Everyone of these products are great! All standards addressed and the kids enjoy the work!
♥ This is a wonderful unit. It is going to make to transitioning to my maternity leave seamless, no matter if my sub gets a few days notice (as planned) or a few hours. In the mean time, the unit is comprised of great quality lessons that I will enjoy teaching myself!
♥ This was a perfect novel study. I love that the questions not only helped my daughter review the information from the chapters, but really think about what was happening and the moral issues from the story. Very well done!
