Here’s what teachers are saying:

✏️ “I love how this resource flexes to work with any book and to meet the wide range of skill levels of my students. I haven’t used all of the activities yet, but his is one of those resources that gives me an energy boost because I look at the activities and think, “Oh, how fun! I can’t wait to use this!” Such thoughtful touches to the design such as with the vocab sheet asking for kids to find “interesting words”. The inclusion of “interesting” just gives it a lovely tweak to how students can approach this task . . . to their level of personal engagement. This is my new “go to” resource! Thank you for creating this resource and making it accessible to the rest of us. Deserves more than 5 stars!” -Suzanne B.

✏️ “These resources are perfect for the various reading levels in my classroom. This allows all the students to read a book at their level, but focus on the same skill. Thank you!” -Kody S.

✏️ “I used multiple pages for book reports for my 7th students. Because the sheets were easy, I combined them together to create a specific way to report their monthly reading. It worked well and most students did a great job.” -Michelle A.

    Been teaching for a long time, but was interesting to see what new and younger teachers are concerned about.

    I am starting 4th grade next year. I’ve taught 3rd grade for the last 4 years and I’ve always struggled with routines and procedures. This resource is very helpful!

    There’s always so much to do at the beginning and end of a year. It’s nice to have a premade checklist to get things started.
