Junkyard Wonders Book Companion
The Junkyard Wonders is perfect any time of year for addressing themes of bullying, friendship, and self-esteem. This comprehension focused unit was developed as a reading and writing unit co-taught with our guidance counselor. It includes both Digital for Google Slides TM and PDF options. If your school uses one to one devices, the digital format will be a great help for literature circles or stations.

HOW THE JUNKYARD WONDERS UNIT IS ORGANIZED:
The unit includes 46 pages of activities (23 in each format). 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.
