ReadWorks.org MAGNIFICENT Common Core Resource

I think I have died and gone to Teacher HEAVEN! After registering and exploring for the last half hour, this resource is definitely BOOKMARKED! I stumbled upon this magnificent resource while searching for new ways to teach Main Idea to my 2nd graders! 

Lesson plans aligned to the Common Core Standards. Lesson plans that tell how to teach them. Lessons plans that provide resources to print or use on Smart Board or any digital Whiteboard!

Free, research-based K-6 reading comprehension lesson plans and non-fiction reading passages & question sets aligned to the COMMON CORE!  

Skill & Strategy Units:
Author's Purpose
Cause & Effect
Character
Classify and Categorize
Compare and Contrast
Drawing Conclusions
Explicit Information
Fact and Opinion
Figurative Language
Genre
Main Idea
Plot
Point of View
Predicting
Pronoun Reference
Sequence
Setting
Theme
Vocabulary in Context
Voice

It gives you access to:
1,000 Nonfiction Passages that align to the Common Core and State Standards for grades K-6! You can download the passages in Word or PDF format. Use them on your Smart Board whole group or print them off for differentiated instruction! They include research based question sets and they are Lexile Leveled! ReadWorks.org also provides lessons & units for Fiction that align to the Common Core! 

I am so excited! I made a list of books that I already own that I want to pull from my classroom library to use next year with the printed lesson plans & questions to teach Common Core ELA Standards. I hope to purchase more books from the lessons provided!
