Save time planning and know that you are covering all the standards. This year-long Common Core curriculum map (also called a pacing guide) has the school year broken down week by week with language arts teaching topics and their correlating Common Core standards. Areas covered are Common Core literature, informational text, foundational skills (phonics), writing, and language (grammar). The curriculum map organizes the year into six units (five weeks of teaching, one week of review and assessment for each unit). This leaves a few open weeks at the end of the year for final testing and other activities.
An editable version of the curriculum map is included if you need to make customizations.
The included assessments test students on the grammar, phonics, and reading comprehension skills taught during the unit. The tests are each about four pages long and include a mix of multiple choice, short answer, fill in the blank, and matching. Along with each assessment is a test review. The format of the review is very similar to the format of the test. A key is included for each assessment and review.
