Did you know that we took this story into schools and the students helped write the story and the title?
We also had two teachers both with a masters degree in education write curriculum for the book.
You can get it free! But you will need to purchase a book to get the most out of the teaching.
Simply go to my website and click on "fun stuff" ( school is fun right?)
Then look for teachers guides, student workbooks, and activities. It is all there for you to download.
I would love to hear your feedback.
Kids are always welcomed to write me and I will respond back to them. What a great spring break project!
