Teacher Mini-Lessons on:
The story and poem are both originals that I've written. I enjoyed writing these two fun and interesting pieces that I know 2nd and 3rd grade students will enjoy! Fun, relevant and educational…what more could you ask for!
You can use these in small student-led cooperative groups, whole class, small instructional groups, at a literacy center and so much more!
