Hi everyone! I just wanted to share our progress so far on some of the Literature Unit Studies we’ve been working on! We started off with The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. It was a great book to begin with and I was pleased at the eagerness of my kiddos to keep reading more!



Actually they wanted to keep reading so much that we actually had to go back and play catch up with our lapbook pieces since we got so far ahead in our reading!



I guess I should be happy that reading 1-2 chapters wasn’t enough for them! Here is the start of Strawberry Shortcakes timeline. I’m loving the little pictures they are drawing to go with the story.



Here is one of her pre-reports. Apparently she thinks Edmund’s name is Edwen. Guess I’ll have to clear that up for her before her next report LOL!



Here are some of the inside pieces that we’ve done so far as well.



And here is what the finished one will look like eventually, only it’ll be more colorful! In this unit we are discussing character qualities, villains, heroes, courage, bravery, sacrifice, and forgiveness. The study also includes vocabulary terms, a book report, and story predictions.





Thanks to a friend, we also got to sample Turkish Delight… I have to tell ya, it’s a little weird…



Since it’s nice and cold outside, once we finish this book, we’re going to start with the Mr. Popper’s Penguins Unit Study! I hope you all are enjoying your unit studies as well!


  1. We are starting Mr. Poppers Penguins too after the holidays. And then onto Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe. As a former English teacher, I LOVE your units. Especially since my kindergartener and second grader can do the lapbook together. I highly recommend to anyone that is thinking about purchasing the literature units. Easy to follow, interactive, and rich with content!

  2. We did your Charlotte’s Web in October and your Mr. Popper’s Penguins in November, and the kids enjoyed both–especially Mr. Popper’s Penguins! We’re planning on doing the Stuart Little one in January 🙂 I’ve really enjoyed purchasing these. My kids have really loved them.

  3. We live in Washington state and have a treat here called Applets and Cottlets. It was started by Turkish emigrants and is just like Turkish delight. Every Christmas we eat it while we watch The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. While my kids look forward to this tradition, I have heard that people from out of state don’t like this treat.

  4. Yay!! We just downloaded this and my son is super excited about it. I am really looking forward to making Turkish Delight. Thanks for having this available. I have been telling everyone I know to come check out your site.
