This inclusive packet contains short stories for five common core reading literature standards. Along with the stories are question pages that relate specifically to the reading skills of the common core standards, as well as a separate skills practice page. There are three total pages for each standard, fifteen student pages altogether. The stories can be used for close reading practice in a whole group, small group, or independent setting.
