Book Unboxing Assignment – Teacher Feedback:

  1. “Overall, a solid resource. As always, your resources are excellent and straight forward. I absolutely love all your units. They save me so much time. Worth every penny.”
  2. “I’m in Canada, but it worked well with our curriculum as well (Oral Language, Media Literacy, etc.) and the students loved it. The resource is super organized and thorough – I didn’t have to do much tweaking (except for the Standards/Expectations). We also had a great discussion around cyberbullying and leaving positive comments and helpful suggestions (without being hurtful). It’s so relevant for students and they had fun with it!”
  3. “Another great resource from Two Peas and a Dog. Currently using this as a replacement for our monthly book review. Students are enjoying it very much – engaging for distance learning.”
