5.0 out of 5 stars A Teacher's Dream!! March 7 2014
By Maryanne DeGrasse - Published on Amazon.com
I absolutely love this toolkit! It is user-friendly and a great way to teach or review literary topics through the use of picture books; which are provided! Just the other day I used the literary tool kit to teach points of view. The teacher guide was easy to follow, the picture book was perfect, and the handouts were wonderful. I really can't say enough about it!!!

The Literary Elements Toolkit is fantastic! I love the organization and presentation of the lessons which are scaffold, complete and easy to follow. With the use of picture books, my students are always engaged and challenged to think deeper. As my school district switches over to the Common Core Standards, I am thrilled that I am already utilizing the perfect resource. Love that everything is included in the kit for you from lists of picture books, to graphic organizers, to extension activities. I highly recommend the Literary Elements Toolkit for upper elementary to middle school teachers!!
