What are others saying?!

Katherine- "I bought this at the beginning of March and quickly made it a part of our morning routine. It has been invaluable in reviewing for testing, and spiraling through all the reading standards! I cannot wait to use it ALL YEAR next year (because I totally bought the bundle!) This is one of my all time favorite/most valuable TpT purchases!"

Natalie- "This. Saved. My. Life!!! My district was in the middle of piloting several different curriculums, and the old resource was so outdated I refused to use it. These were so great to help my students practice the different skills, and also a great assessment tool for me. Thank you!!"

Allison- "This is amazing at covering lots of different standards! You get LOTS of low prep materials for the price. I used this in small groups with students, but also had them do it as independent work as standard practice. Love this!"

I needed my students to have constant practice of all the standards, but I didn't want to spend a TON of time close reading everyday and that is how paragraph of the day was born. Now students can practice every skill every single month! Plus, I can use them for morning work, homework, or a quick assessment! I hope they work for you as well as they do for me!

Much Love,


The Friendly Teacher
