Reading Literary Text Common Core

All > Reading / Literature > READING SKILLS > Reading Skills - Paired Text > Reading Literary Text Common Core

If it is important to you to meet the Common Core reading standards or the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills reading standards, this series from Evan-Moor will make it easy to accomplish. The goal is for student to demonstrate mastery of certain reading skills in a variety of genres. This series covers several genres, including myth, folk tale, comedy, realistic fiction and historical fiction.

The series is very easy to use. Charts early in the book show which literature selections meet which requirements of the standards, the reading level of each story, its genre, type of analysis being studied, and what type of writing will be done after each selection. Bullet-point definitions of the different types of genre make it clear what characteristics make up each genre. Ditto for literary elements (point of view, setting, character, plot, etc.). Lesson prep and directions are simple to follow. The stories seem well chosen; my 3rd grade sample contained nine 2-page selections from Country Mouse and City Mouse, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, Carl Sandburgs Rootabaga Stories, Davy Crocketts 1846 Almanac, and the Greek legend of Damon and Pythias. Ten discussion questions with answers are provided for each selection. Close reading questions require the student to find specific answers in the text and mark or highlight them. Vocabulary words (8 to 10) that may not be familiar are listed, along with definitions, and are then used to fill in the blanks in sentences. Short answer and multiple choice questions test whether student understands the literary elements. A writing assignment wraps up each section, featuring different types of writing, such as narrative, explanatory, or opinion. An answer key in the back is provided.

Even if you are not a big fan of the Common Core or TEKS standards, this series provides good reading selections with a variety of follow-up activities to ensure understanding of the reading selections, all in an easy-to-use format.
