As a middle grade/middle school teacher, parents typically want ideas for how to help their struggling readers. That's tricky, because I just want to say, "Read! Read! Read!" But I know they might need more direction. I made this hand-out and posted it, along with book recommendation lists, as a FREEBIE in my store for you to use too! Link in profile.
This great Instagram Activity is perfect to use in your elementary or middle school (or even high school!) classroom to help student further understand characterization, symbols, and evidence based writing. Hits multiple Common Core Standards in a fun way - and it's a free resource!
