? This follows that same concept, except there's more!
This packet features 10 secret messages. With each secret message, there are story cards with choices for the main idea. Each story card has a number that corresponds to a box on the secret message page. Once the student chooses an answer, he/she puts the letter in the corresponding box. When all the boxes have a letter, the student should read the secret message. I recommend laminating all the pages/cards or using sheet protectors.
The secret message page and story cards match in color, so it makes organization easy.
