In this download, you will find activities that correlate with the new Common Core State Standards to supplement Harcourt Trophies Basal 1-1, which includes the stories: The Hat, Sam and the Bag, Ants, Jack and Rick, Todd's Box, and All That Corn.
You will find materials to use in your guided reading groups and centers. The activities lend themselves to utilization in a writing center, reading center, phonics center, pocket chart center, game center, and art center.
-Teacher talk cards, created specifically for each story, along with focus skill graphic organizers.
-As an additional bonus, there are teacher talk cards and writing templates for story recall that can be used interchangeably between each of the basal stories.
-The writing prompts are pulled from the suggested Lesson Planner pages in the Teacher's Edition. Each prompt is thematically related to the basal story. There are two prompts for each basal story.
-Reading Tic-Tac-Toe practices sentence fluency. These sentences are pulled directly from the basal story.
-5 in a Row: Word Fluency uses the weekly spelling words, the corresponding decodable's vocabulary, and words from the basal. This activity allows students to practice the week's phonics skill and high frequency vocabulary.
-The pocket chart materials incorporate sentences from the basal story, and are presented as cloze sentences. Students must read the sentences, fill in the missing word, and order for the correct story sequence. This activity reinforces the story's phonics skill, high frequency words, sequencing and retell practice.
-In addition, there is a scrambled sentence activity for each story that can be placed in an art center.
-Directions and a Common Core Standards List are included.
