I have created short answer questions that correlate to the Common Core Standards for each story in Unit 1 of the first grade Journeys Series. Each short answer questions includes the learning target, question, primary lines, and the Kentucky short answer box for more advanced students. This can be used as an assessment or for whole group guided literacy mini-lessons.
It is specific to the first grade Journeys textbook, but could be used as practice for kindergarten or second grade if the stories are accessible.
*This resource has been updated to include a rubric (based on the Kentucky Scoring Guide) to show your students what they could do differently to make improvements.
