***Feedback from teachers***
"Loved this!! The students had a wonderful time coloring the picture afterwards. it was a well-deserved "break" from test prep in their eyes, while I was happy that they were still finding evidence :)"
"This is such awesome resource! My students love learning about the different holidays and things that happen during the season! They also align perfectly to our core standards. Thanks for a great resource!"
"Your mystery pictures were one of my students' favorite activities this past year! I used them in RTI as a fun spiral-type review."

These comprehension passages make students WANT to reread a text and even work hard to find the correct answer so that they will be able to color their mystery picture correctly. Best of all, it's self-checking so you can scan quickly to determine the needs of your students.
