Comments about this resource include:

I used these with my 3rd grade tutoring student. I loved that they were short and we could easily talk about what strategies to use.

Used these as review for each objective during test-prep. Students enjoyed the quick review. Thanks!

I used these in my small-group after-school intervention class with whiteboards, and the students really responded well. Thank you for this resource.

This makes reading circles so much easier and fun!!! My kids love these!!
