**Contains 7 Common Core Aligned ELA Activities**
This package was created as a resource to use when reading Amazing Grace by Mary Hoffman. While it was designed for my first grade classroom, it can easily be used in second and third grade rooms, given the cyclical nature of the Common Core State Standards.
The standards addressed in this package include:
*RL1.1: Ask/answer questions (comprehension quiz for book)
*RL1.2: Central message/lesson
*RL1.3: Story elements (graphic organizer)
*W1.1: Opinion writing (includes prompt, planning page, and publishing paper)
*SL1.4: Describe people with relevant details (character map)
I hope you find these activities useful in your classroom! Please rate this product if you have a chance. Thank you!
