Students will love labeling picture and text clues with stickers that can be placed directly into any book. Use these to facilitate discussion about story elements such as character, setting, problem, and solution. Perfect for small group activities or incorporated into a reading center.

How do they stick? Note in the thumbnails or in the preview, we use a soft scotch tape (the kind that won't damage the book). You may also consider taping the "stickers" to a small post-it.
