PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is the March portion of a larger WinterBundle This unit makes the Common Core easy! It has everything you need to address Common Core writing, the informational reading that supports it, fluency passages, fluency charts, and the art that makes school fun! See every page of this unit in the preview! Each week there is a Social Studies or Science themed passage, a matching writing prompt, and art project. The writing prompt includes pre-writing “maps” that help children process their thinking and successfully and easily get their ideas on paper. All reading passages are available in 3 formats so that you can use them as your weekly fluency passage if you wish.

For a short time this unit will be 30%off
Every page of the unit can be seen in the preview. YES, every page!



Your lesson planning for writing is done! The social studies and science theme of the unit means that you can address the Common Core demands of informational text during your school day!

Passages have been written to be VERY readable for your first graders with teacher support. This is not independent reading, rather it is fitting the Common Core Shared Reading and Informational Text Research piece. My students read the passage with me every morning for 2 minutes. They squeal with joy each Monday morning when I give them their new passage and show them the art, writing, and Thinking Process Maps!
