What educators are saying

Students and Staff member obsessed! This is such an organized and easy to use resource and my 7/8 class was so engaged with the content! Will be using this with all my future intermediates
My students really love this book so far, and having so many options to work with them on background knowledge as well as comprehension questions and discussion questions has been very beneficial.

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Leah said, “These activities added a lot to our study of Refugee.  They are well-designed and engaging.  They also encouraged deeper level thinking and analysis of the text.  Great purchase!”

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Kathy said, “I have used other Refugee resources from TpT but this one was by far my favorite! The students were able to access the slides easily from a link I posted. It allowed them to work on the slides remotely AND best of all, no lost packets! I appreciated the variety of skills the students worked on throughout our novel study.”

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stuck in the Middle said, “Resources are READY TO USE!!  This is a great guide to use with the novel that covers pre-reading topics (MY FAVORITE RESOURCES OF THE PACK!), worksheets to use section by section while reading, handouts that help students connect the similar themes, events and qualities of the characters, and more!   

    The nonfiction texts that cover the historical conflicts of each storyline are concise, informative, and a great resource.  I especially like the audio files that go along with them!  

    Thank you for such a great, easy to use, resource!!”
