Out of the tree appear ten engaging and colorful woodland animals that each introduce a research-based common core reading strategy. There are 5 decoding strategies and 5 comprehension strategies:
- Pointing Porcupine
- Detecting Deer
- Sounding Out Snake
- Chunking Chipmunk
- Rereading Raccoon
- Predicting Possum
- Summarizing Squirrel

Wow! This has been a savior this year in a class where kids were not motivated to read! This helped my guided reading groups tremendously and the kids can't wait for their reading groups everyday! Thank you so much for an engaging and "fun" way to learn their reading strategies in a teach to the test world! This is excellent work!!
