These companion packs are perfect for targeting comprehension, story elements, and higher level comprehension skills based on the Common Core Standards!
Each pack Includes:
-Character Description: Students should fill in the bubble map with character traits. For an extra challenge, students can write the page number that shows text evidence for the character traits. 2 character maps are included for each book.
-Dictionary Detective: Students can practice their dictionary skills by looking up Tier II words from the story and filling in a word map. 2 words and word maps are included for each story in each book.
-Story Map: A story map is included for all three of the short stories in each book. Students can fill in the story map by hand, or use the cut and paste pieces included for non-readers.
