This is a 4 Week Books by Pat Hutchins Literacy Unit that incorporates Common Core Standards!
This thematic study is organized and colorized week by week and includes a contents page. The wonderful part about it is you can do any week at any time! You do not have to follow any particular order. You may also choose to do just one, two, or three of the thematic categories instead of all four. All pages are numbered to help you keep organized!
Week One: Pat Hutchins Animal Books (Yellow)
Week Two: Pat Hutchins Titch Books (Blue)
Week Three: Pat Hutchins Silly Monster Books (Green)
Week Four: Pat Hutchins Other Characters Books (Tan)
