B4FIAR - Play With Me unit study

I created this unit for my daughter to go with the book Play With Me by Marie Hall Ets. It's a cute little book about a girl who visits a pond looking for someone to play with and learns a valuable lesson about being still. My daughter is going into first grade so some of these activities are for older kids than the typical B4FIAR crowd, but I feel it's a nice mix for any family to use, especially if you're combining ages. 

Play with Me

The theme I chose for this story is ponds and some of the animals the little girl encounters on her visit to the pond.
