A few of my store followers have asked if they needed the textbook to use my FSA prep products. For my reading wonders products it was hit or miss. For this product, it is not the same case. I am taking the Text Talk stories (which are also easily available in school libraries or in stores) and creating test prep worksheets for them. Since the new Common Core tests are not just multiple choice, students new more practice with other types of test questions. This product includes vocabulary cards, pre reading questions, and a one-page test prep worksheet that works great for a comprehension grade to go with the story. I like to use the vocabulary cards for a quick intro to the story, or for a quick activity were students can create mini posters for each vocab word. The pre-reading worksheet works great for morning work the day of the read aloud. It helps to build background knowledge! "The Principal's New Clothes" is a great for the beginning of the school year or a quick time filler! I hope you enjoy this product! Stay tuned for more! Perfect for second or third grade.
