CCSS Reading Foundational Skills {Repetition & Alliteration}

Common Core Reading standards place emphasis on an integrated model of literacy. As I mentioned in the prior post, the standards also establish a “staircase” of increasing complexity.

Within this model, it is vitally important that teachers are teaching foundational skills using actual text that is the appropriate complexity. To ensure that all teachers are using a complex range of on-level texts, CCSS provides text examplars for “grade bands”. The grade bands are K-1, 2-3, and 4-5. Text examplars are example texts that students should be exposed to and engage with. CCSS offers text exemplars for Reading Literature and Reading Informational Texts. While these lists are not all encompassing, they are a great starting point for teachers to teach from and then identify similarly rigorous texts.

Today’s downloads include repetition and alliteration activities and CCSS K-1 Text Exemplars for Poetry. {For nonprofit educational use only!!} These downloads will allow you to promote the phonological skills of repetition and alliteration awareness, and then extend into using complex text.
  • RL.K.4 Ask and answer questions about unknown words in a text.
  • RL.K.5 Recognize common types of texts (e.g., storybooks, poems).
  • RL.1.1 Ask and answer questions about key details in a text. 
  • RL.1.4 Identify words and phrases in stories or poems that suggest feelings or appeal to the senses.
  • RL.1.10 With prompting and support, read prose and poetry of appropriate complexity for grade 1.

Stay tuned for more activities to support the CCSS Reading Foundational Skills. Clipart by Lettering Delights.
