What other teachers are saying about this literature unit:

♥ I had so much anxiety dropping $20 at one time on TPT. Once I opened and watch the first video, I almost danced a jig! I watched one of your YouTube videos when I was taking classes to reenter the classroom and loved your ideas. I can't wait to go through the entire packet to see the great ideas you've included! I'm loving the first day activity!!!!

♥ Variety of resources and activities for the students to complete while reading the book. It includes a calendar, PowerPoint, grammar sheets, research topics/ questions and many suggestions. Also includes words from each of the chapters for the students to define using context clues and the quiz for each section.
