"I LOVE this resource. I teach fourth grade it has been great to have for every novel we do. For my on and below-grade level learners, we do this in small groups together with their novel and I have seen growth in their comprehension. For my above grade level learners, they use this to support their book study time and love it! I love to hear the conversations that develop. GREAT resource."
