Included are 4 differentiated reading activities that connect reading to writing with post-reading writing activities. The differentiation provides accessibility for a variety of students. Each topic includes three leveled readings at lexile levels (basic, on grade level, advanced) appropriate for grades 3-5, and three leveled activities to match the readings. Each reading on a topic contains the same information, but the language varies slightly to achieve easier or more difficult readability.
Each page is marked with the CCSS standard it satisfies and a discreet symbol that tells the teacher the level of the reading or activity. Though these activities are aligned specifically with 4th grade CCSS, they can meet standards for both 3rd and 5th grades as well.
