If you want to make sure your holiday read aloud is rigorous enough to meet CCSS but still fun, then this pack is what you need.
This packet was created to use with the book Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett.
Each skill or strategy has multiple pages that are differentiated to fit the different needs of your students - you can have all your students working on the same skill but with a page that best fits their needs.
This packet is tailored to this book with specific questions of varying degrees of difficulty. Students will respond by drawing, circling answers, writing sentences and finding text evidence to support their thinking.
Included in the packet:
Directions and Common Core Standards for each skill and strategy. Plus ideas for extending some of the activities.
