The lit kit addresses your literacy needs by covering both Common Core and Texas Teks in the most engaging teacher friendly way!
The November Lit Kit covers 19+ standards across reading literature, foundational skills, informational text, language, writing, and speaking and listening. It truly is the all in one! Use it in small group, whole group, read alouds, literacy centers, and literacy journals!
Each standard addressed comes with a student friendly "I can" poster.<
The target grade level is first grade. (There is a lot of overlap in the standards from K-2, so this would still benefit all three grade levels and their different levels of learners.)
