Jan Brett Author Study

A couple years ago I made this Jan Brett unit. I updated it last year with some new clip art. I love this unit, mostly because Jan Brett is easily one of my favorite authors. I can read her books all day long. When I first started reading her books to my class years ago, I found that her books were perfect for teaching so many skills. Click here to read about how a student inspired one of these pages! (Love when that happens.)



The skills covered in this pack are:


 Here are a few pictures from previous years. Sorry for the fuzziness of the photos! 











If you love Jan Brett books as much as I do, you will love this pack!

  18. i think every teacher loves Jan Brett, but so do my students. They can spot Jan Brett art in a heartbeat as it is so unique. I love all of her books, but my favorite character is Hedgie. My kids love the stuffed Hedgie. But, the Mitten is also right up there at the top.
