How can you use this product in your classroom?

They will learn about important back to school themes and lessons while getting practice answering open-ended questions and citing their answers.
⬟ These original stories are written primarily for 2nd and 3rd graders and are Common Core-aligned. {This edition is probably too difficult for incoming firsties. Please download the preview before purchasing.}
⬟ Students read the stories/passages and answer open-ended questions about what they read.
⬟ Title strips: Use these to have your students make predictions about what they're about to read or at a center.
⬟ These sheets are great for centers, assessments, homework, or classwork.
