Product Description
Are you wondering how to teach the Common Core standards with your old Houghton Mifflin series? Then this product is PERFECT for you!

I created this VERY DETAILED and FANTASTIC EDITABLE resource out of my own needs to align the Common Core with my ELA curriculum. This unit is PACKED with many fun activities, graphic organizers, games, Daily Literacy activities, blackline masters, and blank worksheets to tailor them to the needs of your own classroom.

Worksheets are Common Core aligned with standards listed on the first pages of the file. Each teacher read aloud has an opinion writing activity at the end as well as a connection to the text (text to text, text to self, text to world). Each story also has a sequencing activity.

There are worksheets that require students to answer questions by citing the evidence from the text. I also added Depth and Complexity icons on worksheets for higher level learning.

This unit is separated by stories and their skills. I’ve also added blackline masters for all the Thinking Maps used in the resource.

Please download the preview for an overview of the unit and full page previews.
