❤️ What are teachers saying about this grammar bundle?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My students have found these to be very easy to use. Their independence is growing and I am able to see the practice of breaking down the reading materials reflected into their writing! - Julie M.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My independent readers loved using these story "book report" responses. I love all the options. It boosted their confidence to complete a book report independently, and I was also able to use it as part of homework reading response at times. Thank you! - Fe S.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I feel it is never too early to have students respond in writing to a story they have read to boost comprehension and sentence structure. My grandson enjoyed doing a report "like the big kids" and I love how it focuses on small segments at a time. - Ms Amy B

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I absolutely love the fact that we can read fiction and nonfiction books and we always find the perfect template book report for different kinds of books. - mariana H.
