** THIS RESOURCE IS PART OF THE 2ND GRADE HOUGHTON MIFFLIN READING SERIES - THEME 5: FAMILY TIME***
Trying to figure out how to aligned your old Houghton Mifflin curriculum to the Common Core Standards? Then this is resource is PERFECT for YOU!
I created this resource out of my own need to fulfill the Common Core Standards. This unit is PACKED with many fun activities, graphic organizers, games, Daily Literacy activities, and blackline masters. Every worksheet has the Common Core standard listed in the top right hand corner.
One of my favorite things about this resource is the common core assessment of the skills taught within that story. It has open ended comprehension questions with the last question always connecting text to self, text to world, or text to text.
