⭐ A sixth grade teacher said, “I really appreciated the flexibility of this product, because it empowers students to make their own choices. Because there are multiple boards for fiction and non-fiction, it also allows you to choose one board to assign at a time, or one of each for students to choose their type of book as well as the activities.”
