HOW THE THUNDER CAKE UNIT IS ORGANIZED:

You can pick and choose the parts you want to use and the order. However, my units are organized in a before, during, and after format. I typically project the part of the lesson I’m using to demonstrate my expectation and assign either the digital or print version for completion.

TEACHERS LIKE YOU SAID…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Anna K. says, “During the school closure, I posted a video of a celebrity reading the book. The students watched the video then did the activities that I posted on Google Classroom. They really enjoyed it and responded well. I plan to use this during the fall when I need to have a sub. This is a great way to get students reading and writing without a lot of prep work on me or the sub. Thanks for the great resource! ”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Bethany R. says, “I loved the digital option and so did my students. They were able to complete the activities on their chrome books which made the experience much more engaging.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Mary Russell says, “This a great resource for using this book and provides different comprehension strategies as well as higher order thinking skills!”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Avery Z. says, “This was a great resource to supplement the required materials for our study of Thunder Cake. It helped provide extra support to my kids that needed more of a breakdown of the story. Great tool for leveled group work!”
