Excellent introduction...helps reader access schema for reading. Explanation of skills well done. Graphics++. May want to raise the level of questioning to get readers to dig deeper. Like the written responses.

Thanks for rating our activity! I visited your store but didn't see any products yet. I was going to see what you created so I know what you meant about the level of questioning. Thanks again.

Product Questions & Answers

On  November 26, 2012DCrum (TpT Seller) asked:
Hello,

Could you please tell me the differences between this item and your Number the Stars Superbundle?

Thank you
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 26, 2012Wise Guys answered:
The Super bundle would include more activities such as a game board, discussion questions, a literature circle activity and more. It is a better bargain than just the guide. Thanks for the question!
On  October 27, 2012Melanie Lawrence (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Wise Guys,
I love your products and your holocaust unit! I noticed you asked about "raising the level of comprehension questions." Google "Webb's DOK-depths of knowledge" - you can see all sorts of higher level comprehension questioning beyond recall or describe, etc.
Hope this is helpful.
Thank you again for all of your wonderful products,
Melanie :)
