What educators are saying

This was a fantastic resource for my third graders! They could all read different I Survived books and complete the same activities.
This was a great resource for engaging my students. I selected the pages that would benefit my ELL's without frustrating them. I will be using this resource yearly.


"I Survived" books are a wonderful resource to use with students who are gaining independence with chapter books and who need work on sustaining reading comprehension over multiple chapters as well as improving critical reading strategies and skills.

Now, digital slide access gives even more flexibility!

There are tons of "I Survived books" in the series, and you can use this resource with each and every one! Use it over and over and change it up each time with the extra pages!

I love that it can be used with ANY of the books…so you can use it with one student, with a group of students, with a number of students all reading different "I Survived" books—or even with a class read aloud. I used it with a guided reading group--and then used some of the additional pages for a few students to work independently on OTHER books in the series! You can even use it in a book group where all students are reading different books--the guiding sheets can be the uniting force.

The concepts covered are CRITICAL READING SKILLS—from character development to summaries to "proving" their thinking with the text. Get creative—but know that everything you need is right there, ready to copy and use. One of the unusual features is that the student response pages have the minilesson explained right at the top--so both teachers and students know what to be working on!

It makes planning so easy--and helps students and families know exactly what learning is taking place. This resource also ties in the historical fiction component and gives the students opportunities to research and record their findings--all of which will help them better understand the text.
