Updated on 2-2-14 What changed?
I added an acrostic for RUBY which you can see in thumbnail image. Why? Too many of my students this year had trouble coming up with the required amount of words for BRIDGES. Also- for all Venn Diagrams, I duplicated them but added labels at bottom with arrow pointing to Different, Same, Different to help guide younger users. (So 31 pages now but kept 26 in product description because new ones are duplicates and another Acrostic option.)
Although I am listing this for second-fourth grades, I am a first grade teacher and am planning on using this with my kiddos. Look at the preview and see if it's suitable for you. (Not everything in preview!)
