My Favorite Author Study for Winter: A Jan Brett Unit

My all time favorite children's author is Jan Brett, so naturally it is my also my favorite author study. I started small my first year teaching first grade. Then each year I slowly read different books and focused on different comprehension skills. Jan Brett books lend themselves to so many teachable moments. A few years ago, I sat down and put it all together. There are "ready to go" resources and center-type activities. 

Here is a picture I posted on Instagram showing some of the centers:

  1. Books by Jan Brett are the best for wintertime read alouds!! I especially love the illustrations and how they can be used to make predictions throughout the story. Hope you are having a great week!!

  2. This looks great! I love Jan Brett. When I click on the sample page images, nothing happens. Is there a broken link, or are they not supposed to download? Thanks!
