Product Description
These are groups of titles that I have compiled based on books that have worked for me in teaching different K-2 comprehension skills, strategies and Common Core standards. The lists include mentor texts ideal for teaching the following:

RL.1 – Questioning
RL.1 – Predicting
RL.1 – Inferencing
RL.2 – Moral, Lesson and Message
RL.3 – Beginning, Middle, End
RL.3 – Setting
RL.3 – Sequencing
RL.3 – Characters Change
RL.3 – Cause and Effect
RL.4 – Feelings & Appealing to the Senses
RL.4 – Words & Language
RL.5 – Illustrations (Wordless Books)
RL.6 – Point of View
RL.9 – Compare & Contrast (between two fiction books)
RL.9 – Compare & Contrast (within one fiction book)
RL.9 – Compare & Contrast (between a fiction book and a nonfiction book)
RL.9 - Folktales
RL.10 – Text Complexity List for Kindergarten
RL.10 – Text Complexity List for 1st Grade
RL.10 – Text Complexity List for 2nd Grade

These mentor text lists are a freebie but also included in my latest literacy product that teaches students all the Common Core Reading Literature standards called Common Core Reading. If you are looking for complete and comprehensive master documents for teaching every fiction aspect of your curriculum, this is the packet for you. Every fiction standard, K-2, is covered!

Even if your state (Texas or Virginia) or country does not follow the Common Core State Standards, these lists will be useful to anyone that is responsible for teaching students all aspects of fiction and literary text.

Thank You!
