It is a crazy time right now and lots of schools are closing. I wanted to help everyone who is looking for some materials to send home for students or something to read with their kiddos who are wondering about the coronavirus.
Another tip as you prep this story, if you want to limit the number of copies you make as you get materials ready, try printing this story with two pages per sheet, and make a half-size book. This also works in black and white. It is just a way to support you and your students during this outbreak. I hope it helps. Drop me an email and let me know if this was useful!
