What teachers are saying…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “My students loved using this resource this week in my guided reading group. I struggle to find passages to use in guided reading groups that are appropriate for my students and assess their comprehension skills. This resource is the perfect solution! I love the variety of this resource to assess various skills such as theme, main idea, point of view and more. This is going to be a game changer resource when we begin reviewing for our state testing in a few weeks. Highly recommend this product!” - Kristina T.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “My students loved getting to use these resources this week. Students were able to use these for independent work, small group, as well as task cards. I loved how it covered a variety of ideas including main idea, cause and effect, making inferences, and more. These were perfect for my lower group on questions, as well as pushing my higher students to try different skills. I loved how everything was easy to print out and have nothing to do because everything was there for me to use. I highly recommend this resource.” - Amanda L.
