Product Description

You can find hundreds of literacy lessons in hundreds of places—but none of them will do for students what the ones in this book do. What’s the magic bullet? Potent integration.

In this much-anticipated sequel to the K-2 Common Core Companion, Janiel Wagstaff provides an ample supply of connected lessons you can use as booster shots when your students are in need of a good dose of integrated, standards-aligned reading and writing instruction. 

Divided into five weeklong learning sequences, the 50 lessons span the ELA standards, bringing a Monday-through-Friday clarity to the sometimes mysterious process of skill-building through demonstrations and practice. Follow each sequence and week by week, you’ll build the instructional potency to help students achieve a year’s worth of growth as you integrate: 

  1. Writing Narratives with Identifying Sensory Words in Text
  2. Research with Identifying Topic and Details
  3. Opinion Writing with Close Reading for Text Evidence
  4. Comparing and Contrasting with Publishing Using Digital Tools
  5. Informative Writing with Use of Text Features 

Each of the 50 lessons is eminently dippable. But if you want to do more extended instructional planning, there are lots of additional tools—including lists of mentor texts, and If/Then and Extending-the-Work charts—within the book and on the companion website.
