How to Use Coloring and Comic Books

  • Choose books designed for the appropriate reading level: pre-literate, emergent readers, or fluent readers.
  • Download the interactive digital books onto your school's computers, so kids can learn to recycle while they practice their mouse skills!
  • Or give printed copies to every student who is using the RRR You Ready curricula.
