⭐️⭐⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I love these Reading Strategy activities. I like that the kids can connect a strategy with a character. The resource provides plenty of activities for the students to practice applying the skill. I also love the premade lesson plans that accompany the strategy so that is less planning on my part!” -Marisa B.
