  1. Looks like you've included a lot of nonfiction in your unit this month! I think I'm going to use some of these ideas not only with my tot, but in my Kindergarten classroom. TFS!

  2. Glad I can be of help! I think nonfiction is great, even for the younger crowd. We don't read every page of the nf books but they are great resources for pictures and info!
