This product will give you, the teacher, a full year's worth of "I Can" literature and informational text Common Core Standard goal statements along with key questions you should be asking to assure students master proficiency of the goals at a higher order thinking level.
Each literature and informational text goal includes the "I Can" statement that shows students what they should be able to do with the Standard; key technical vocabulary italicized for focus; questions that address the technical vocabulary's meaning prior to reading; questions to ask after reading that make students think critically about what they've read and what they should be learning from it.
In addition to this, it is formatted so you may print out copies for students to use in their Interactive Notebooks -- they can highlight, add visuals, notes, borders, etc. to aid in their comprehension, recall, and retention of the material, and use everything at the end of the year as a review prior to testing!
This package not only helps your students, but it saves you a bundle of time in planning -- just copy and use the goals and questions in your lesson plans for each day . . . it's already done for you!
