Students are the illustrators! These leveled, student interactive guided reading books are the perfect tool for teachers to check student comprehension! Simply have the students illustrate each page after reading. Parents love these books and keep them as memorabilia and students have a buy-in because they experience ownership for their own learning through authentic instruction. These books are designed to check and improve reading comprehension with respect to emergent and emergent/early readers. They are Common Core aligned and can be used as evidence in teacher evaluations. This set is best used with k-1 and struggling readers.
I use these books as Shared reads and in Guided Reading Groups. If you use Daily 5 the students can put the books in their boxes for Read to Self or Read to Someone.
Watch your students' faces light up as the discover they will get to be the illustrators!
