This is a 2 Week Wacky Books by Dav Pilkey Thematic 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 either week at any time! You do not have to follow any particular order. You may also choose to do just one, or both, of the thematic categories. All pages in this 45-page unit are numbered to help you keep organized!
