This packet provides a "jumping off" point for your Reading mini-lessons. It is Common Core aligned...every page has an "I Can" statement on the top for each 4th grade Reading Common Core standard. The pages are written in kid-friendly format, and the intention is to use the pages to prompt your lesson/class discussion while students take notes.
In addition, I required my students to independently read 40 books throughout the school year in a variety of genres. At the end of the packet, students apply what was learned about each standard to jot a quick summary, inference, etc about the book read.
