Do you feel like your students aren't really reading when you send them off? Do you scan the room and see children playing instead of reading?

Little kids can do big things! They are fully capable of independently reading (really reading...books) for a sustained amount of time- even in kindergarten!

This product will allow you to give your students tools to self monitor for engagement and learning!
