On  December 10, 2013Mary Larsen (TpT Seller) said:
Love the Biscuit books! I really like your "sequence train" page. It's a tough concept for younger students, but your train visual will help tremendously. I teach ESE students and the majority of my reading peeps are boys under the age of 9 - they all LOVE Biscuit and trains! Thank You very much!
On  December 10, 2013Comprehension Connection answered:
Awesome! So glad that the visual will help them. I use a train in class that I made with construction paper and laminated. When we do beginning,middle, end, I let the kids write with dry erase markers on it.

Thanks! I appreciate it. I only add that one page, so it's not a huge unit. Enough for a week though and something that can be used with paras or with volunteers. Enjoy!

Disappointed, I thought there would be visuals to sort city vs. farm.....
On  December 10, 2013Comprehension Connection answered:
I waited through the evening for your reply, but didn't hear back from you. I revised this unit to include the activity you asked for. In the future, you might consider emailing the seller first before leaving this type of feedback. The unit is priced low, and I am certain I saved you a lot of time by providing the unit for sale. The feedback without much rational is hurtful and honestly unjustified considering the product matched the listing.
