***Feedback from teachers***
"I love these close reads with a mystery picture. They are really engaging for the kids - and they make a great sub resource, too. Thanks!"
"I love that this is tied to reading, there are so many coloring options for math but not for reading! This is great!"
"I wish I would have found these sooner! My students will actually read so that they can color the mystery picture. They love this activity. Thank you SOOOOO much."
