***The K-2 version of this item is a TpT No. 1 Top Seller***

*Note: The 3-6 Informational Text (RIT) version of this product is now available HERE & is a TpT Top 10 Best Seller!

This product is available at a 20% discount when you purchase it together with the RIT version. Here is the link to the bundle.

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!

This product is extremely low prep for both you and for students, copying only...no time wasted cutting, gluing, coloring...no trash and no losing track of parts and pieces. Sheets can be collected, quickly assessed and returned to students for immediate feedback.

This product marries the reading and writing demands of the Common Core as students must do more "writing about reading" than ever before. These sheets give students daily practice in writing about reading and justifying their thinking with text based evidence.

Whether you teach reading comprehension through a Daily 5 or Reading Workshop structure, or even a basal series, this comprehensive CCSS Reading Literature (RL) bundle of reading response resources will supplement every standard you teach in the Reading Literature (RL) strand of the Common Core. This set of reading response sheets for each standard was tailored specifically to the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grade fiction 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 20 Mentor Text Lists that indicate ideal books for teaching various reading comprehension skills, strategies and standards of RL standards 1-10.

Here is the Table of Contents: (see actual TofC in preview file)
RL.1 (questions, inferences)
RL.2 (message, lesson, moral)
RL.3 (plot, characters, setting)
RL.4 (word choice, language)
RL.5 (text structure, text types)
RL.6 (author/illustrator, point of view)
RL.7 (words & pictures)
RL.9 (story comparisons)
RL.10 (complex text comprehension)
Mentor Text Lists
Extra Goodies
