Good morning, Friends! I am so excited to share today’s packet with you!
Several years ago, I published a Down at the Pond Packet for Kindergarten and First Grade. It was the first themed Kindergarten and First Grade packet that I created, so it’s a bit…dated. 😉
Since my girls and I are reading about the Pond next week, I wanted to give it a nice face lift!
Note that the new and updated packet is for sale in my shop, however, you are certainly welcome to download the original Down at the Pond Packet for free!
Also, in the next few days I’m publishing a Frog Life Cycle packet and our Favorite Pond Books! So make sure you stop back by!
