PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

*As of 5/1/13, this item can also be purchased bundled with my Common Core RIT pack for a 20% discount when you purchase both RL & RIT bundles TOGETHER.*

*******************************************************************

***This item is a TpT No. 1 Top Seller***

***The 3-6 version of this product is now available HERE***

This product can be used with any reading series, program or un-program...for the schools and classes out there doing a home-grown reading "un-program"... this product is ideal!

Whether you teach reading comprehension through a Daily 5 or Reading Workshop structure, or even a basal series, this comprehensive CCSS Reading Literature (RL) bundle of reading response resources will supplement every standard you teach in the Reading Literature (RL) strand of the Common Core. This set of reading response sheets for each standard was tailored specifically to the Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade fiction standards. Use these sheets during your mini-lesson as models of how students can organize their reading thinking and show their comprehension and understanding of fiction. They can be used whole group, small group, during independent reading time, at a literacy station, as homework or even as an assessment. Corresponding standards are clearly indicated in the upper right corner of each sheet so you know which response sheet goes with which CCSS. All page headers are written in the “I Can…” language of the standard. This product also includes 20 Mentor Text Lists that indicate ideal books for teaching various reading comprehension skills, strategies and standards of RL standards 1-10. Mentor text lists are listed below.

Here is the Table of Contents:
RL.1 (questions, predictions, Inferences) – pages 3-32
RL.2 (message, lesson, moral) – pages 33-48
RL.3 (plot, characters, setting) – pages 49-130
RL.4 (word choice, language) – pages 131-144
RL.5 (text structure, text types) – pages 145-160
RL.6 (author/illustrator, point of view) – pages 161-177
RL.7 (words & pictures) – pages 178-193
RL.9 (story comparisons) – pages 194-211
RL.10 (complex text comprehension) – pages 212-218
Mentor Text Lists – pages 219-239
Extra Goodies – pages 240-246
Notes – pages 247-248
Credits – page 249
Terms of Use & Thank You – page 250

*I am still adding pages....I've added 7 pages since I posted this a few days ago.* Read more about this product at my blog post HERE.

There are over 230 common core aligned, cute-to-boot, reading response sheets, graphic organizers and reading activities to teach and learn all Common Core State Standards for Reading Literature K-2.

RL.1 – Questioning
RL.1 – Predicting
RL.1 – Inferring
RL.2 – Moral, Lesson and Message
RL.3 – Beginning, Middle, End
RL.3 – Setting
RL.3 – Sequencing
RL.3 – Characters Change
RL.3 – Cause and Effect
RL.4 – Feelings & Appealing to the Senses
RL.4 – Words & Language
RL.5 – Illustrations (Wordless Books)
RL.6 – Point of View
RL.9 – Compare & Contrast (between two fiction books)
RL.9 – Compare & Contrast (within one fiction book)

*Please take a look at the 40, that's right, 40-page product preview to see full page samples of the reading response sheets and graphic organizers included in this product, appropriate for Kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade. Please note there are over 235 sheets just like this included. This product is light on the narrative and mostly the actual reproducibles.* (This product is one file, one easy PDF download...but you'll need to latest version of Adobe Reader to open it.)

On  February 3, 2014,  Buyer asked:
Great resource, but I cannot order it because it does not follow the proper writing conventions that I am encouraging my Kindergarten students to follow. For example, uppercase are written in the middle of words, and the I is written in cursive rather than manuscript. I feel I should model proper writing conventions when I present work to my students.

This bundle is just the reading response sheets. There are lots of lessons for this on TpT or you google "lessons to teach RL.1" with lots of free stuff.

I was wondering for your packet Response to literature 1-10,# 10 ELA literacy is with prompting and support,read prose and poetry of appropriate complexity for grade one.Your preview says I can closely read the text to deepen my understanding of the story. Not sure what it is supposed to be,unless I am reading it wrong.These common core standards are overwhelming to say the least. Thanks.

On  September 9, 2013Hello Literacy answered:
You will notice that Standard #10 does not include many graphic organizers. Standard 10 is not actually a "student standard"...it's really a standard for the teacher. Your students, with or without support, are not trying to prove to you that they are reading increasingly complex text throughout the year. That is the teacher's job. I should really take those few pages out.

Hi Jen,
I am a huge fan of your work published on Teacherspayteachers. Next year, I will be teaching second grade with common core and am exploring some options for intervention materials geared for the "strategic" learning (not the high or the bottom low.) Most of our students are second language learners. I will need decoding and fluency materials to support our intervention block that is easy to follow. What materials do you sell that might meet this need?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  May 11, 2013Hello Literacy answered:
First of all, congratulations on your move! Anything in my store that says RTI could be used for students needing more phonics and fluency practice, used either as practice during the intervention intself or used to progress monitor the phonics or fluency intervention. So, the 60 Fluency Passages, the Foundational Literacy packs ($10 each) and I'm working on a 3rd set now. English language learners also struggle with phonological awareness due to lack of english language exposure so my Two Peas phonological awareness curriculum is just the repeated practice and exposure they need...that is for sale, either by the month or the months are bundled together in a product at www.hellotwopeasinapod.com. You may also want to check out the free resources available at www.fcrr.org under the link Student Center Activities.

On  April 9, 2013Anna Lynn (TpT Seller) asked:
I absolutely love this, but it looks like there are some pages my kids just aren't ready for (understandably, since this is a K-2 packet and I teach K). Also, this is my 1st year, and I have already spent about $1,000 on my classroom...I was hired 2 hours before back-to-school night began, and with being an add-on classroom, there weren't many materials or supplies left so I had to buy most of it. That said, at least right now I can't afford to spend $20 on something I can't use every bit of, no matter how wonderful it is. :-/

Just wondering if you expect to break it down into separate K/1/2 packets ever (I doubt it, since the different grade levels allow for more differentiation within a grade) or if you know the next time you will have a sale? I am following you now on TpT and fb, so hopefully I will see a notification/update in my newsfeed, but I was just curious if you plan your sales ahead of time.

Hi! The (severe) AU teacher at our school used a lot of velcro and storyboards. (She has moved from LMES). She would take a lot of pictures of the book pages themselves and have her AU students sequence story events in order. You could do the same with character traits using words from the text and not from the text to have students velcro text-based character traits to the correct character. Just ideas. I am not trained in special education or instructional practices for the AU population, but these were strategies that seemed to work for her.

Hi Jen,

This looks like a phenomenal resource-very extensive! I had a question about resource list of books. Did you get the suggested list of mentor texts from the appendix for the CCSS? I know there is one; I just went to a great PD and they referenced them and suggested we put them for our grade level in our plan book. I just don't have that handy right now.

Thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 16, 2013Hello Literacy answered:
I do have that list suggested from the CCSS and I can email it to you if you'd like. Problem is, many of them are out of print. I did not use any of the titles from the CCSS lists, and if there is overlap, it's purely coincidence. The lists were created based on my own experience teaching reading and now the Common Core. I didn't put a book on the list if I hadn't personally used it and all of the books on my lists are not only aligned to the cc standards as far as being ideal for teaching RL 1 - 10, but they are favorites with kids.
