This is an amazing resource! I constructed each of the 9 reading mini-lessons included. Each of the mini-lessons are quick and involve the students throughout the entirety of the lesson. These lessons are kept in their Reading and Wrting notebooks as a point of reference for the students throughout the year. The 9 lessons included are: main idea and supporting details, character traits, plot, contecxt clues, point of view, research tips, summarizing, and theme. The lessons are all in a similiar format which is helpful for students.
