    As always these units by this author/authors makes me take my teaching further with the guided questions. They think of things for each book to do that I would not have thought about on my own.

    This resource was amazing. I was able to use it with almost all of my groups, and the carryover has been great. It is almost Thanksgiving and my students are still asking about Crankenstein!

    My kids loved completing these activities after reading Crankenstein! There were a great variety of activities to go with the book and they loved turning themselves into a Crankenstein! Thanks for sharing this awesome resource!

    I cannot tell you how much I loved using this in class! My kids loved the book, and they were engaged with the activities. The craftivity was also a ton of fun and I had a kid crying because he wanted to take his Crankenstein home! The price point is also amazing.
