Looking for a way to teach common core standards using the current HM curriculum? Look no further! My 26 page packet covers theme 6 reading and comprehension, and offers: launching the theme guiding question and art project, kid-friendly standard descriptions, graphic organizers, world cafe questions (and detailed description on implementation), and writing prompts for each of the theme 6 stories, as well as a final writing prompt to wrap up the theme (with differentiated graphic organizers). I have honed and edited these pieces for three years with my second grade students while I was in a two year CCSS district cohort. I also give a detailed suggested timeframe for teaching with tips from the front line and offer e-mail support! Please check it out!
