30+ Resources for a Winnie-the-Pooh Unit Study... and a Free Unit Study Planner

As a child I loved the Winnie-the-Pooh stories. These classic tales are sweet and gentle. When I had my own children, I passed on the stories, reading many of them aloud. The stories are perfect for reading aloud because they offer many opportunities to discuss the characters and their adventures.

January 18 was the birthday of Winnie-the-Pooh author A.A. Milne. Celebrate it this year with a fun unit study. Use this free unit study planner to create your own unit study with these resources.
