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 Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd 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. Mentor text lists are listed below.

Here is the Table of Contents:
RL.1 (questions, predictions, Inferences) – pages 3-32
