  • I love this resource! Can this resource be edited to use the watercolour background instead of the current squiggles?

    • Open the document in Word, click “Enable Editing” that should appear under the menu. Then right click on the image and click “Change Picture” and choose your image and resize as required. (Google “Free Watercolour Textures” if you need some images).

  • I group my students according to focus, therefore their groups are changing on a daily basis. Is there a way to integrate the template to allow fluid groupings?
