Was disappointed that the resource was so generic. Could use this with any novel, or story. I was expecting something more specific to War With Grandpa.
On  November 5, 2013Teach with Tracy answered:
I am disappointed that you are disappointed...my products are set-up so that the format of teaching common core through graphic organizers can be used independently by students once the organizers are taught with one book. The comprehension questions and quotes are book specific as are many of the organizers.

this was a little hard for my third graders.. would recommend for mid to end of the year for other third grade teachers :-)
On  September 15, 2013Teach with Tracy answered:
I would agree on the difficulty level. I teach 3rd grade and only a handful of my students could handle this (esp. at the beginning of the year) - but it's nice to have for my higher readers! Thanks for your purchase!

I think this will be great when paired with The War With Grandpa question set available her by Stories by Stories. I like all the graphic organizers,and the graphics, it saved me so much time as I won't have to make them myself. ( I can't rate the accuracy as I haven't used it yet.)
