Thanks for all the great beginning of the year literacy activities. My kinders had lots of fun!
Absolutely PERFECT!!!!!
Wonderful unit! My students loved it!
Used a great deal of this packet to support my skeletal system unit. We are not allowed to celebrate Halloween so I do a skeletal system unit (and bats) if I have time in October — so I get my room decorated and get some great Science in too!
