Reading Stems Student Reference Sheet **FREEBIE**

This is a handout of comprehension stems and a format for a weekly friendly letter to the teacher so students can show their thinking about the books they are reading. It's a great addition to a classroom as a poster or as an insert for a Reading Notebook.
