Product Description
I have been using Soar to Success books with my students for years. Why? Children absolutely love these wonderful, engaging books! Each year I do my best to try and update them so that they stay current with best practices of the times. This year, I’ve decided to go ahead and ALIGN my fourth and fifth grade Soar to Success books with the Common Core. I’m also planning to create several units of PAIRED READING PASSAGES to support my students with the standardized testing in the spring.

This Resource Includes:
1. A title page if you'd like to create a Packet for your students
2. Suggested Lesson Plans
3. An INFORMATIVE PASSAGE that teaches students about the devastating disappearance of elephants in Africa.
4. A Common Core aligned printable note page that provides students an opportunity to analyze the PROBLEMS and SOLUTIONS and FACTS AND OPINIONS stated in the informative passage. Student answer options vary from short answer to constructed responses.
5. A Common Core aligned printable that provides students with the opportunity to draw inferences from Tippu.
6. Common Core aligned questions in short answer and constructed response formats, for students to answer throughout their reading of Tippu.
7. A graphic organizer to outline the plot, one section at a time.
8.A writing note-taking page and Common Core aligned opinion/informative writing prompt.
8. A printable, themed stationary page for students to write their opinion essay.

With guided and independent practice, students learn to:
1. Respond to common core aligned questions relating to the individual passages
2. Then, respond to a writing prompt by integrating details (previously collected) relating to the (paired) passages.
