Do you need easy grab n' go reader's workshop lessons for your K-2 classroom to meet the Reading Common Core State Standards for teaching author's purpose? Are you tired of writing your own lessons, pulling them out of different books, and/or purchasing lessons here and there? This is the product for you!

This Grab N' Go Lesson Bundle has reader's workshop lessons for an entire unit (13 LESSONS) - Author's Purpose! The unit begins with mentor texts that are also thematic and perfect for the beginning of the school year! Each lesson follows a scope and sequence to cover the Reading Literature and Reading Informational standards.These lessons can be used K-2, with the Reading Common Core State Standards progression for each grade level attached right on the lesson plan!

Every lesson includes an engaging mentor text (many even recommended by the CCSS) that we have found especially meaningful for our students. Are your ready for the best part?! Every lesson is detailed, yet succinct enough to fit on one page - ready for you to print on card stock and hold easily in your hand while teaching!! They all include CCSS, learning goals, an essential question, a recommended mentor text, A SCRIPT for teaching, and extension options. We are confident that any K-2 teacher will love this product!

*Perfect for lessons when teachers are being observed - every aspect of the lesson is included for you and a copy can be handed right to your administrator!
*Great for teachers without a given reading curriculum, who are expected to teach to the CCSS.
*Perfect for homeschool teachers!
*Even great for teachers who do have a given core curriculum - these lessons can easily be slipped in to best meet your student needs and create the kind of reader's workshop environment that encourages students to love reading!

Great compliments to this product are the Common Core Progression Tool as well as the Reader's Workshop Book Lists that we sell - they match up perfectly and are MUST HAVES - check them out! We know you will love them!
