Units of Study - Little Lessons

The Units of Study for ELA or "Little Lessons", originated in May of 2011 as part of a statewide effort to create English Language Arts lessons that are relevant to the Common Core State Standards.  The Little Lessons in the Resource Center are created by YOU, teachers in the state of Arkansas.  The ELA Mapping Project started with Kindergarten through Second Grade.  Thus, the Resource Center has a collection of Units of Study for K-2 and Units 1-6.

If you would like to use the templates used in the creation of the Little Lessons there are three formats below from which to choose.  
  You may 1) copy the material in the window below and paste it in Microsoft Word or other word processor.
