The Sign Painter -- Freebie -- Common Core Text Exemplar

Here's another post in my series on the Common Core text exemplars for second and third grade. My students are going to love the illustrations. Allen Say's beautiful text tells a captivating story that leaves just enough to the imagination. It is a great title to use for inferencing, making predictions, describing how characters change in the course of a story.....you name it, this book has it!

This activity has three different documents for literacy stations in one download! Students can make predictions, analyze characters, and discuss story elements. 
Just click on the pic above to download the file.

Please leave a comment and let me know if you use any of the text exemplars.

  5. I am always so excited when I see you've posted something. You are really digging deep into the Common Core (figuring out how to teach things that are honestly hurting my brain this deep into Summer) and introducing great new books. Where are you getting the list of Common Core Exemplars?

    Thanks again!
