This unit contains activities connected to the First Grade Reading Street program, 2013 (Common Core Edition). There are 60 pages focused on student responses to the content of the 30 stories in Units 1 to 5. Thirty pages contain fill-in the blank comprehension questions, and thirty pages contain questions requiring short answer responses. Students should be able to work on the comprehension activities independently, with a partner, or in a small group. The written short answer activities focus on improving the students' independent writing skills by asking them to answer in complete sentences. Students will soon become familiar with the expectations and standard page setup. This is a wonderful way to check for understanding, while improving your students' independent reading and writing skills.
