***This product is the Common Core Informational Text counterpart to my TpT Top 10 Best Seller, Common Core Reading: Comprehension Strategy Sheets for K-2 Reading Literature Standards*** Thanks for your patience with this bundle of joy...;-)

*Teacher Hack: if you reduce these pages to 80% on the copier, they fit into any Interactive Notebook.*

This product can be used with any reading series, program or un-program...for the schools and classes out there doing a home-grown reading "un-program"... this product is ideal!

Whether you teach reading comprehension through a Daily 5 or Reading Workshop structure, or even a basal series, this comprehensive CCSS Reading Informational Text (RIT) bundle of reading response resources will supplement every standard you teach in the Reading Informational Text (RIT) strand of the Common Core. This set of reading response sheets for each standard was tailored specifically to the Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade informational text standards. Use these sheets during your mini-lesson as models of how students can organize their reading thinking and show their comprehension and understanding of fiction. They can be used whole group, small group, during independent reading time, at a literacy station, as homework or even as an assessment. Corresponding standards are clearly indicated in the upper right corner of each sheet so you know which response sheet goes with which CCSS. All page headers are written in the “I Can…” language of the standard. This product also includes Mentor Text Lists that indicate ideal books for teaching various informational reading comprehension skills, strategies and standards of RIT standards 1-10.

Here is the Table of Contents:
RIT.1 (questioning) – pages 5-52
RIT.2 (main topic & key details) – pages 53-169
RIT.3 (connections & relationships) – pages 170-232

There are over 360 common core aligned, cute-to-boot, reading response sheets, anchor sheets, graphic organizers, text suggestions and reading activities to teach and learn all Common Core State Standards for Reading Informational Text K-2.

Mentor Text Lists are suggestions. These are groups of titles that I have compiled based on books that have worked for me in teaching different comprehension skills, strategies and Common Core standards. The lists include mentor texts ideal for teaching the following.

*Please take a look at the 32-page product preview to see full page samples of the reading response sheets and graphic organizers included in this product, appropriate for Kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade. Please note there are over 360 sheets just like this included. This product is light on the narrative and mostly the actual reproducibles.* (This product is one file, one easy PDF download...but you'll need to latest version of Adobe Reader to open it.)

There is a "My Mini Text Features Notebook" with 14 text features in this product, but if you want a more comprehensive Text Features study, consider purchasing my full text features product, Common Core Informational Text Features Notebook.

*Note* - all book jacket images in this file are fictitious, created by me and all real photographs are either my personal photographs or in the public domain for commercial use.

**Also Note** - this file is 100 pages larger than the Reading Literature product...with so many options for reading about science and social studies, I have incorporated many K-2 topics in these pages and mentor examples, for the same price as the RL packet.

If you like this product, check out my pack for all the K-2 Reading Literature standards.

Thank you for looking, adding to your wishlist or purchasing! I appreciate your feedback!
