This NO PREP packet of literacy printables can be used in so many ways. You can use it for reading and writing centers during rotations, as formative classroom assessment, enrichment for your gifted students, or even RTI for your students that need a little something extra. It can be used with Journeys second grade curriculum or as a stand alone unit with the book The Mysterious Tadpole by Steven Kellogg. Journal prompt powerpoints are included. They are full of colorful and eye-catching fonts and pictures to start your day.
Each page is completely common core aligned and lists the standard right at the bottom of the page. "I Can" statements for each standard are also listed on the page to save you time!
