What Other Buyers Are Saying:

"I used this during shared reading and it was fabulous. I love that she included multiple organizers of the same information to show variety and to solidify the information. My students used one organizer with me and I gave them a different organizer and a different text to do with a partner. They were successful because I was able to scaffold with the same academic vocabulary. Great resource!"

"My students used this resource and really loved it. It was super effective in preparing them to take the STAAR test and benchmark test. Love it."

"Students usually struggle with argumentative text and argumentative text resources are always hard to find! I really liked doing the activity with the passage with my class."

What Others Have Said About The Reading Interactive Notebook:

"This resource has been such a stress reliever for me!! Whenever I am ready to start a new unit, I just go search and see what resources there are. I like that there are several options for each skill."

"After buying a few of the pieces separately, I finally purchased the entire notebook for my centers."

"WE love this resource in my classroom. It helps to put reading skills in easy terms for my students. They love the visual to refer back to. Well worth the investment in this resource!"

"This resource is so amazing and has made students understand the way they learn best. It gives choices of mentor texts you can use with it and multiple levels. The students are able to group together and make their own anchors in their interactive notebooks to take advantage of their own learning. I like how it gives examples as well to help with the setup and how it is to be used if you wanted."
