Use this literature resource to support your lessons on the common core standards for literature by using the Sharon Creech story: A Fine, Fine School. Students will practice up to 9 common core literature standards with this funny story.

What are literature support pages? They are a resource you can use to support your lessons on the literature standards. This companion pack is designed to support your Common Core literature lessons that go along with A Fine, Fine School. This resource is geared to grade 3 to cover these essential literature standards: (RL3.1, RL3.2, RL3.3, RL3.6, RL3.7, L3.5c, W3.1).
