One of my favorite things about this resource is that they use a standardized lexile to help you determine who should be reading what book. I also love this great teacher's guide for the book, The Class Election from the Black Lagoon. In it, you'll find a series of guided learning activities, discussion questions, vocabulary terms, comprehension and text connection strategies perfect for teaching kids in grades two and three. Puns, humor, creative writing, and reading comprehension are all used to help learners get the most out of a fantastic book.
