What educators are saying

I taped the cards around the room, and students completed them during independent work time. My students love when they can walk around with a clipboard. These were perfect.
These were great- I used them to intro the 5th grade Units of Study (Unit 2) Reading unit about nonfiction reading. Thanks!
