Here are some possible uses for these in your classroom:

✿ display posters on bump it up walls

✿ reading focus for small group work

✿ Use reading passages in reading groups or deconstruct as whole class


The perfect resource for teaching informative writing. I used this during our literacy groups. The kids were so engaged!
