Teachers have you tested your students at end of the year and they have forgotten the things you taught them since the beginning of the year? My Reading Boxes are the fix to your problems. Reading Boxes are used daily and are Common Core based in the form of worksheets. (Yes there are some good Common Core Stuff in here ) By doing these worksheets daily you give students an opportunity practice concepts so they remember what you have taught them, even if I was back in August. What is neat about spirals is they can be used as bell/morning work, transitions in lessons, Daily 5, centers, or in preparation for a year end test.
Because Readin Boxes are something you use every day you will find those hard common core standards starting to become easier by the day.
These Reading Boxes are aligned to Common Core State Standards for First and Second Grade. However if you have a high performing Kindergarten class it can be used as well. Remember daily practice is the key. I would use these Reading Boxes for any student struggling in the Third grade and needs more practice for standards they may not have mastered.
Reading Boxes are great because it gives your students confidence because they see the work every day. When they are tested on the standards you will see results.

Complete sentences - Beginning and End punctuation
