Why will these paragraphs help your students grow?

Engagement- Students love the topics and learn something new with each topic! They are also quick so students don't lose interest doing them everyday!

Rigor- The questions make students think and go back in the text to prove their answer.

Low Prep- Print and use!

Versatile- You can use them for morning work, homework, assessments, or just skill practice!

I needed my students to have constant practice of all the standards, but I didn't want to spend a TON of time close reading everyday and that is how paragraph of the day was born. Now students can practice every skill every single month! Plus, I can use them for morning work, homework, or a quick assessment! I hope they work for you as well as they do for me!

Much Love,
