Have you guys read the story Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine, and a Miracle? Oh...my...goodness... It's puh-reh-cious!
Our state created some really good frameworks for us to use to support the new Common Core curriculum. One of the stories in our 1st 9 week unit is Nubs! This is a non-fiction story that tells a heartfelt chance meeting of an Iraqi dog of war and a US Marine. These 2 form an unlikely bond that ends with Major Brian Dennis raising over $2,000 to have Nubs sent to the US so that he can have a REAL home with Brian.
It's a pretty long story, so we spread the reading out over several days. But we have to say, the kids LOVED this book and just couldn't get enough of it!
We created several resources to go along with the book. We hope you can use them too! Just click each picture to grab your copy!
