PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

With the implementation of the Common Core State Standards, I have been busy making sure I teach each part of the core. I have compiled all of my lessons that I use as mini-lessons to either introduce {whole-group} or reinforce {small-group} that align with the CCSS. Hopefully this will help you get a grip on the Reading Literature part of the CCSS {ELA}. Please know that I will be making more of these lessons to go with the rest of the ELA Common Core. Enjoy!

Comes in color and black/white!

*Question Words Necklace
*Sticky Notes Retell
*5 Finger Retelling
*The 5 Senses of a Story or Poem
*Informational/Narrative Double Bubble Organizer
*Informational vs. Narrative Sort
*Who is Speaking?
*Compare and Contrast {books}
*Compare and Contrast {characters}
*Story Elements Posters


*Although this is aligned to the CCSS for 1st Grade Reading Literature, this would be a perfect review for 2nd grade or intro to your higher kindergartners.
