Christopher Columbus set sail westward from Spain in 1492 hoping to find a way to the Far East and instead landed on islands off the coast of North America. Your students will enjoy learning more about his voyages in this third grade Level O reader. This book is one of the five stories in my collection "Third Grade Leveled Books: Level O - Set 3".
It is a great book for combining social studies and language arts!
The book will help your students build their vocabulary and improve their reading comprehension while they are learning interesting facts.
The six-page book comes with four accompanying worksheets which reinforce literacy skills involving reading, language, spelling, and writing. Specific concepts, skills, and vocabulary targeted in each book are listed on the first page of each story.
This is one of my original series of leveled books which are written to incorporate the Fountas and Pinnell leveled vocabulary, Rebecca Sitton spelling words, and common core curriculum standards for grades K-6 in the United States.
