Thank you so much -I use your website daily for my special needs student and his reading comprehension has greatly improved

excellent resource for informational text and guided questions!

Thank you! this is perfect for a lesson I am beginning.

Thank you so much for this website. I am a specialist teacher but I teach reading and math in a fourth grade classroom at my school doing what we call double dose. I work with my group of students 4 mornings per week to reteach and supplement what the regular classroom teacher is teaching. This site enables me to pullnecessary resources by standard that can help students acquire what they missed when the teacher presented the lesson. I pull my own materials because I like to know what i'm doing when I get with my students. This makes it easy because I also have 5 to 6 classes of my own after the morning double dose group whom I have to plan for. Thank you again and again.
