Product Questions & Answers

On  February 28, 2013Ashley A Smith (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi there! I bought your awesome packet yesterday and can't wait to use it with my first graders! I wanted to change the way that they return the packets, and I was wondering if it would be possible to email me the family letter so that I could change the wording slightly. My email is asmith2@gmsd.k12.pa.us. Thanks a ton!! :)

I teach second grade. I am wondering what the reading level is for most of the books. I have readers from primer to fifth grade. Can you tell me some of the titles?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  February 27, 2013Stephanie Stewart answered:
Hi Hershey Chick! I have a wide range of readers in my 1/2nd combo class too. For this reason, the challenge is specifically designed to be used with any books that the kids select or that you would like them to read. There are 25 questions that pertain to fiction books and 25 questions that pertain to non-fiction books, but none of the questions are specific to any one title. So the nice thing is every kid can complete their challenge while still reading books that are just right for them and on their personal interest/reading level! :)
