“For the first week of school we did this unit and it is so complete! Even down to teaching them what it means to feel safe in the classroom and how they can contribute to another classmates safety was awesome. I loved the little pocket chart activities and centers, introducing the tools used in the classroom, etc. ” -Renee B.
