If you're using Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's Journeys 2014, this resource packet is for you! Included are comprehension questions for each story, designed to address Common Core standards. Use this as homework, as a guided practice activity with small groups, or in an independent literacy station.
While it's exciting to get new and updated books, we all have our favorite resources that support tried-and-true routines that we know work with our students. With a new reading series, now you are faced with the daunting task of refreshing these support materials to correlate with your new series. Look no further - we have developed engaging go-to activities and resources to work with this new series.
If you are interested in other materials for this reading series, please check out our Units 1-5 Bundles - they include four valuable resources: Weekly Newsletters, Skills Planning Chart, Study Guide Comprehension Questions, and the Spelling Quizzes.
