This product was designed to made the transition to and implementation of the Common Core Standards a little easier! This packet includes a one-page assessment for almost every reading and language standard. There are also rubrics for the writing standards and a checklist for the speaking and listening standards. You'll also find a Common Core Standards checklist for all of the language arts standards.
I don't worry about having the books from the same series as much as I do from the same author. Today, we're reading Bats at the Beach, and we've already read a few Bats at... books, and we're going to compare those books. For a chapter book, I highly recommend Gooney Bird Greene, and I love using Patricia Polacco for picture books.
Yes, but there is no way I can create it until this summer. That will take a good deal of time to make.

For RI 3 and RI 7 you don't have an open ended assessment page, just the ones about rocks (RI3) and frogs (RI7). Is this a mistake or by design? Just wondering because I am using it (and loving it by the way) in class and need to give a summative assessment, which I usually do with the open ended page you provide, and I need to know whether or not to make one myself. Thanks!
On page 46 of this .pdf, are you able to re-cut and paste your rubric so the green squiggle line (grammar in Word) is gone? I know seems nit-picky, just thought I'd ask! I love the product!
