I am crazy about this unit because it actually is a big reading review, dressed up and disguised as a really fun Valentine's Day Literacy unit. I love Valentine's Day and think all of these topics are ones that the kids will really enjoy. When kids are having fun, chances are…they'll learn a lot too!
