Helpful ideas!

I'm in love with this website. Wonderful resources for Common Core skills.

This site gives so many great ideas, activities and reading passages. All of these are aligned with The Common Core so it makes my life SO much easier.

I find this site extremely helpful when teaching reading strategies. Plus, the passages are tremendously engaging.
Thank you so much!

This website is amazing. I gave my students an assessment and found that they were continuing to struggle with cause and effect relationships. I pulled this site up while they were at specials and found a passage that we were able to work on as soon as they returned.
I love how user friendly the site is and the plethora of resources available.

Thank you a million times over for these already created passages that help us so much in the "trenches"

Absolutely love, lines up nicely with Common Core! Thank you very much!!!

I love the posters provided with the unit. They are very good visual reminders for the students as they read and evaluate any type of text.

It's a time saver. Love it

I love this site, it really helps me a lot.
