WHAT TEACHERS HAVE SAID:

“What a fantastic resource! The passages are perfect for small groups and independent practice.  I really enjoy the pages with tips included, and not included for independent assessment. Thank you!” -- Mrs. P.

“Absolutely love this!  This is exactly the practice my students need.  The "light bulb" supports are incredible. I used to create these types of worksheets on my own, but it was so time consuming.  Love it!” -- Laura F.

“These have been great to work with my students.  The passages are short enough for a quick mini-lesson and go over a very useful skill.  Thank you!” -- Rachel L.

“Wonderful and invaluable resource! I can tell so much thought and effort has been put into everything. This makes my planning and teaching so much easier and better! Thanks so much for your dedication to quality.” -- Leonor R.
