PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use this literature resource to support your lessons on the common core standards for literature using this Gerald McDermott story. Students will practice up to 9 common core literature standards with this Amazon folktale.

How it Works
What is a companion pack? It is support material that you can use to support your lessons. This companion pack is designed to support your CCSS literature lessons that go along with Jabutí the Tortoise an Amazon Trickster Tale. This CCSS aligned product is geared to grade 3 to cover these essential literature standards: RL3.1, RL3.2, RL3.3, RL3.4, RL3.6, RL3.7, RL3.9, L3.5c, W3.1.

---->There are also 6 extension activities to go beyond the book.

Students relate well to this fun story of how Jabutí gets tricked by Vulture and falls to the rain forest floor. With this fun story, teachers can begin introducing the CCSS Literature standards. Included are suggestions and strategies to use for each activity page in this companion pack with a suggested pacing guide of 11-12 days. These are not complete lessons, but intended to support your lessons on the common core standards.
