***********Teacher Feedback******************

1. "Great resource for literacy! Thank you for having 1 set labelled by genre and one by month. I like having the flexibility to choose what works for me. I also found it helpful that you gave some suggestions for each genre. Some I already had in mind, others are now added to my 'to read' list."

2. "This resource really helped me get started with my book reports this year. Not only did I want to have students focus on a different genre each month, but I also wanted a variety of book report projects. Your packet was exactly what I was looking for!"

3. "Loved this resource! Many students found that they now "love" reading a particular genre! Yay!! I plan on using this resource again this year. It is a fabulous supplement to our reading workshop! Thank you!!!"'

4. "Another great resource from this seller. Thanks for everything that you do to make other teachers' lives easier and student learning better!"

5. "I love that there are 12 genres and also different response formats. The best part about this resource is that my students were able to complete a meaningful reflection after the presentations where they had to compare and contrast at least three other students' novel reports. Since we had focused on one genre, it made it easier for them to take notes and reflect meaningfully. Excellent resource!"
