This unit is designed to accompany the story, “Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving” by Dav Pilkey. The activities in this unit are designed to foster language and articulation skills while also learning from a great picture book.
The book is not included in this download.
I highly recommend putting each section into a page protector sleeve and then clipping all of the sleeves together. This method of organization makes it very easy to find and organize your materials.
