This unit includes before, during, and after activities, but they could be a little more indepth. More detail is probably available with the bundled units, though. This unit is just like other Wise Guys units...lots of graphics and reader tips which I like.
On  March 1, 2012Wise Guys answered:
More in depth? After looking at other publishing companies products, ours are by far the most in depth. You get comprehension and strategy questions on a chapter by chapter level, not to mention a word study for each chapter as well. Show me one that goes more in depth and it would be unrealistic for a student to do

Also, if all of our guides are alike, why did this one get a 3.5 for creativity when you gave us a 4.0 on other ones?

Product Questions & Answers

On  July 15, 2012Carrie (TpT Seller) asked:
What is this book's Fountas and Pinnel reading level?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 15, 2012Wise Guys answered:
Thank you for your very important question. We don't include the levels of each comprehension guide for the specific reason that there are so many different ways to level books. Most of our guides are geared for the grades 4-6 range. If you want more specific leveling, here is one site we use. http://www.scholastic.com/bookwizard/

Thanks again for your question. Wise Guys
