This 'kit' as I call it is directly aligned with the Common Core. The kit includes graphic organizers and exercises to help students summarize, identify theme, and annotate a text. The kit includes a "Say Something" prompt, "Somebody Wanted But So" chart, Common Core standards with student-friendly translations, sample vocabulary terms, and much more. I have had a great success using this in my class and I hope you do too! It is also helpful (and fun) to not only put the documents in a folder for easy organization, but to also color code each sheet. That way you can say, "get out the red theme sheet" and students know exactly what to do.
