this helps really good

thanks

Just discovered this valuable material. Sure my students will love.

very helpful

The passages are age appropriate and the questions helped to arouse my student's interest and allowed him to think logically.

I can't wait to use these next year. This adds more rigor to my lessons.

very informational

great way to model the comparing and contrasting of two passages. My kids enjoyed this very much.

I love this
