Many of these activities can be used during teacher-lead mini-lessons and in independent work centers, such as the Daily 5.
These activities are aligned to the Common Core:
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.1.10 With prompting and support, read prose and poetry of appropriate complexity for grade 1.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.2.4 Describe how words and phrases (e.g., regular beats, alliteration, rhymes, repeated lines) supply rhythm and meaning in a story, poem, or song.
