Reading Street Common Core 2013 look back and write about the main selection. Included in this pack is a weekly written response for each story EVERY unit of the 1st grade edition. I like to have students plan out their writing first before they write. These tests do just that. With each weekly written response, I want the students to plan out what to write and gather evidence from the text before they begin to write. I have seen huge improvements with organization and it really relates to common core by having them cite evidence from the text. Buy this whole set and save $5.00. It is like buying 4 units and getting the fifth unit free.
These organizers are especially helpful for lower level writers or even for use in a special education setting to help those lower writers plan out their writing first to become more independent and successful with their writing.
