This product is to be used with the Scott Foresman Reading Street 2013 Common Core Edition. Each story has a corresponding student focus board. On the front of the focus board the students can add personal connections to the weekly "Big Question." This can be used to increase student engagement and accountability during the daily concept talks. On the back students have a place to demonstrate their learning for each of the targeted comprehension skills for the week. Use these focus boards as a daily discussion tool and a weekly formative assessment check, or exit slip. Weekly spelling words are also included. I project the documents on my InterWrite board for a more interactive lesson.
