Diary of a Worm, by Doreen Cronin

I absolutely adore Doreen Cronin's books.  Diary of a Worm is a fave, but Diary of a Spider and Click, Clack, Moo are super fun too.  I just completed a new unit that uses Diary of a Worm as a jumping off point.  I also included several nonfiction books in my literature resources too.  This unit meets many of the Common Core Language Arts Standards for reading literature and reading informational texts.  I also included a good dose of science, especially helpful if you're like me, trying to squeeze science in between lunch and specials class.    Stop by my TpT store or my Teachers Notebook shop and check it out.

A related unit, Inchworm Measuring Center is also available, and was designed to help meet the Common Core Standards in Measurement and Data.

    I just posted a freebie based on this book for the letter W. Your unit would be a perfect fit.
