On  February 29, 2012Comprehension Connection (TpT Seller) said:
Disappointed that this guide did not include before, during, and after reading activities like another unit I had purchased from you. Love the overall appearance...colorful and graphics appeal to students. Focus on strategies +++
On  March 1, 2012Wise Guys answered:
All of our guides contain pre-reading strategies before children start the book, comprehension and strategy questions, and revisiting their predictions at the end of the book.
