1 CORRELATION OF COMPREHENSION CLUBS TO THE COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS INITIATIVE FOR ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS GRADES K-5 Common Core State Standards Kindergarten Reading: Literature Key Ideas and Details 1. With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text. 2. With prompting and support, retell familiar stories, including key details. 3. With prompting and support, identify characters, settings, and major events in a story. Craft and Structure 4. Ask and answer questions about unknown words in a text. 5. Recognize common types of texts (e.g., storybooks, poems). 6. With prompting and support, name the author and illustrator of a story and define the role of each in telling the story. Comprehension Clubs provides classrooms with engaging, authentic literature that offers a rich array of fiction. Each lesson card with the Read Aloud and Book Club titles provides questions targeting key details in the text. The Read Aloud cards include a Key Understandings and an Analyze the Text feature that prompts teachers to help students notice and cite textual details in the text. The Book Club cards contain a Developing Comprehension feature that encourages students to follow multiple events in a story, to track the plot and to notice and remember important key details in the story. In both lesson cards students are invited to reflect on the meaning of the text and to share details that they absorbed about the text. Many Comprehension Clubs titles lend themselves to age appropriate retelling of familiar classics such as: Chicken Little The Three Bears Goldilocks and the Three Bears The analytical talk that book clubs make possible fosters deep, multi-faceted comprehension during which time students analyze character, plot, setting, theme of the text. The Comprehension Clubs lesson cards contain a Vocabulary section that lists essential words and related words for discussion. Both the interactive Read-Aloud books and Book Club titles are organized around a sixstrand unit of study matrix that showcases texts that vary by theme, topic, and genre. Each lesson card lists the Genre/Text Type and the Book Themes/Ideas. Theme: Folklore and Literary Tradition, Topic: Telling Tales: Chicken Little The Three Bears This is the House that Jack Built The Little Red Hen The Mitten Goldilocks and the Three Bears Jack s House The Three Billy Goats Gruff Community: Being a Friend Yo!, Yes?

Integration of Knowledge and Ideas 7. With prompting and support, describe the relationship between illustrations and the story in which they appear (e.g., what moment in a story an illustration depicts). 8. (Not applicable to literature) 9. With prompting and support, compare and contrast the adventures and experiences of characters in familiar stories. Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity 10. Actively engage in group reading activities with purpose and understanding. Reading: Informational Text Key Ideas and Details The Book Club Read Aloud Teaching Cards contain a Citing Textual Evidence section that prompts students to integrate information through various graphic styles and formats. Students are encouraged to use Post-it Notes to mark pages where he or she notices something about one of the characters or certain details or illustrations. Comprehension Clubs addresses the specific goal of building knowledge, enlarging experience and broadening world views. Comprehension Clubs offers students an engaging, authentic literature collection that is organized around six strands that work together in an upward spiral across the grades to build essential understandings about themes, topics, genres, and text types. There are six Units of Study per grade, each offering an in-depth exploration of a specific topic with ample opportunities for discussion and writing in response to the texts. The Comprehension Club Read-Aloud texts provide an ideal instructional context for studying topics, themes, genre, text types, text features, and literary elements. Teachers are able to stop and address these aspects of text as well as demonstrate close reading, finding and citing textual evidence. The Book Club discussions work to further reinforce what students learn through the interactive read aloud, deepening student knowledge as they think and talk with their peers. The learning is generative. Students learn a way of looking at and thinking about texts. They become more observant and analytical noticing the text characteristics unique to a particular genre or the way in which authors use language to craft text or the ways in which graphics enhance the book. Comprehension Clubs provides classrooms with engaging texts that offer a broad array of informational topics. Each lesson card with the Read Aloud and Book Club titles Page 2

Actively engage in group reading activities with purpose and understanding. Reading: Foundational Skills Print Concepts 1. Demonstrate understanding of the organization and basic features of print. Follow words from left to right, top to bottom, and page by page. Recognize that spoken words are represented in written language by specific sequences of letters. Understand that words are separated by spaces in print. Recognize and name all upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet. Phonological Awareness 2. Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds (phonemes). Recognize and produce rhyming words. Count, pronounce, blend, and segment syllables in spoken words. Blend and segment onsets and rimes of single-syllable spoken words. Isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in three-phoneme (consonant-vowel-consonant, or CVC) words.1 (This does not include CVCs ending with /l/, /r/, or /x/.) Add or substitute individual sounds (phonemes) in simple, onesyllable words to make new words. The Comprehension Club Read-Aloud program is an ideal instructional context for studying topics, themes, genre, text types, text features, and literary elements. Teachers are able to stop and address these aspects of text as well as demonstrate close reading, finding and citing textual evidence. The Book Club discussions work to further reinforce what students learn through the interactive read aloud, deepening student knowledge as they think and talk with their peers. The learning is generative. Students learn a way of looking at and thinking about texts. They become more observant and analytical noticing the text characteristics unique to a particular genre or the ways in which graphics enhance the accessibility of technical information in a nonfiction text. Comprehension Clubs provides high quality age and grade appropriate texts that reinforce print concepts. As they read, students recognize letters, words, punctuation, format, and text structures. All texts in Comprehension Clubs share certain essential reading components. Readers must solve the words, recognize how the text is organized (the text structure), make sense of the sentences and paragraphs (language structure), and understand what they are reading. Page 4

5 Kindergarten Phonics and Word Recognition 3. Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words. Demonstrate basic knowledge of letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary or most frequent sound for each consonant. Associate the long and short sounds with the common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels. Read common high-frequency words by sight (e.g., the, of, to, you, she, my, is, are, do, does). Distinguish between similarly spelled words by identifying the sounds of the letters that differ. Fluency 4.Read emergent-reader texts with purpose and understanding. Language Conventions of Standard English 1. Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing or speaking. Print many upper- and lowercase letters. Use frequently occurring nouns and verbs. Form regular plural nouns orally by adding /s/ or /es/ (e.g., dog, dogs; wish, wishes). Understand and use question words (interrogatives) (e.g., who, what, where, when, why, how). Use the most frequently occurring prepositions (e.g., to, from, in, out, on, off, for, of, by, with). Produce and expand complete sentences in shared language activities. 2. Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing. Capitalize the first word in a sentence and the pronoun I. In the Comprehension Clubs teaching guide section, Thinking Within the Text, teachers are reminded that thinking within the text includes the strategic actions readers use to process the text and gain a satisfactory literal meaning of the text. Text matters and readers need to account for the facts in an informational text. It s from this base that readers are able to extend and refine their understanding. When readers think within the text, they gather basic information from the text and determine its basic meaning. To do so, readers must process the text by: Solving Words Decoding words and using word meaning and what they know about language. Comprehension Clubs offers students an engaging, authentic literature collection, fiction and informational, that is organized around six strands that work together in an upward spiral across the grades to build essential understandings about themes, topics, genres, and text types. There are six Units of Study per grade, each offering an in-depth exploration of a specific topic with ample opportunities for discussion and writing in response to the texts. The teaching guide prompts teachers to assist students in processing the text by adjusting fluency: Adjusting reading speed and technique according to the type of text and purpose for reading and by Maintaining Fluency by integrating multiple sources of information in a seamless flow that enables expressive, correctly phrased reading. Comprehension Clubs has Books on Tape available to teachers. In this way, they learn about fluency, expression, and reading at an appropriate rate. Fluency and pace affect comprehension. All texts in Comprehension Clubs share certain essential reading components. Readers must solve the words, recognize how the text is organized (the text structure), make sense of the sentences and paragraphs (language structure), and understand what they are reading. Comprehension Clubs has Books on Tape available to teachers. Struggling readers and English Language Learners need help with fluency and comprehension as well as building their confidence to handle both. One of the most effective ways to help is to invite them to read along with an audio tape of the book. In this way, they learn about fluency, expression, and reading at an appropriate rate. They also learn about the role of punctuation and how the various punctuation marks they encounter while reading affect their reading style and pace. Fluency and pace affect comprehension. Page 5

6 Kindergarten Recognize and name end punctuation. Write a letter or letters for most consonant and short-vowel sounds (phonemes). Spell simple words phonetically, drawing on knowledge of soundletter relationships. Vocabulary Acquisition and Use 4. Determine or clarify the meaning of unknown and multiplemeaning words and phrases based on kindergarten reading and content. Identify new meanings for familiar words and apply them accurately (e.g., knowing duck is a bird and learning the verb to duck). Use the most frequently occurring inflections and affixes (e.g., - ed, -s, re-, un-, pre-, -ful, -less) as a clue to the meaning of an unknown word. 5. With guidance and support from adults, explore word relationships and nuances in word meanings. Sort common objects into categories (e.g., shapes, foods) to gain a sense of the concepts the categories represent. Demonstrate understanding of frequently occurring verbs and adjectives by relating them to their opposites (antonyms). Identify real-life connections between words and their use (e.g., note places at school that are colorful). Distinguish shades of meaning among verbs describing the same general action (e.g., walk, march, strut, prance) by acting out the meanings. 6. Use words and phrases acquired through conversations, reading and being read to, and responding to texts. Writing Text Types and Purposes 1. Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose opinion pieces in which they tell a reader the topic or the name of the book they are writing about and state an opinion or preference about the topic or book (e.g., My favorite book is...). 2. Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose informative/explanatory texts in which they name what they are writing about and supply some information about the topic. 3. Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to narrate a single event or several loosely linked events, tell about the events in the order in which they occurred, and provide a reaction to what happened. The Comprehension Clubs lesson cards contain a Vocabulary section that lists essential words and related words for discussion. Thinking within the text during the interactive read-aloud is an effective structure in which to explore academic vocabulary. During interactive read aloud students are encouraged to use suitable words when talking about a text. In Book Clubs, students are in charge of their own thinking and writing. They have a chance to share what they think within, beyond, and about a text, in written form in their Reader s Notebook. In their Reader s Notebooks, students list questions, opinions and textural evidence to support their opinions. Students record their information in the three-part thinking frame: within the text, beyond the text, and about the text In the Read-Aloud texts there is a Write and Respond section that provides writing and drawing activities. The Comprehension Clubs program uses reading and writing as mutually supportive, integrated language processes and students learn to process fiction and informational text across a broad range of text types.

7 Kindergarten Common Core State Standards Production and Distribution of Writing 4. (Begins in grade 3) 5. With guidance and support from adults, respond to questions and suggestions from peers and add details to strengthen writing as needed. 6. With guidance and support from adults, explore a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including in collaboration with peers. Research to Build and Present Knowledge 7. Participate in shared research and writing projects (e.g., explore a number of books by a favorite author and express opinions about them). 8. With guidance and support from adults, recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a question. 9. (Begins in grade 4) Range of Writing 10. (Begins in grade 3) Speaking & Listening Comprehension and Collaboration 1. Participate in collaborative conversations with diverse partners about kindergarten topics and texts with peers and adults in small and larger groups. Follow agreed-upon rules for discussions (e.g., listening to others and taking turns speaking about the topics and texts under discussion). Continue a conversation through multiple exchanges. 2. Confirm understanding of a text read aloud or information presented orally or through other media by asking and answering questions about key details and requesting clarification if something is not understood. 3. Ask and answer questions in order to seek help, get information, or clarify something that is not understood. Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas 4. Describe familiar people, places, things, and events and, with prompting and support, provide additional detail. 5. Add drawings or other visual displays to descriptions as desired to provide additional detail. 6. Speak audibly and express thoughts, feelings, and ideas clearly. The Reader s Notebook process provides for the assessment and evaluation of written responses. The notebook also helps them organize their thinking and become more analytical as they can revisit their thinking and extend and refine their original ideas. Teachers model, discuss and provide practice for a more in-depth written response. See pp. XX for rubrics teachers can use to evaluate various aspects of their students response to their reader s notebooks. The Additional Resources section of the Read-Aloud lesson cards refers students to a website that promotes further research. The Connect to Book Club Books section in the Read-Aloud lesson cards encourages students to explore connections between similar books. In Book Clubs, students are in charge of their own thinking and talking. They have a chance to share what they think within, beyond, and about a text, and their talk, coupled with their reader s notebook, bolsters their awareness of their own development as a proficient reader. Suggested Stopping Points in the Read-Aloud lesson card allows for group and partner discussions regarding key points in the book. In the teaching guide, teachers are asked to focus on Effective Text Talk. This is a result of the many deep conversations about books that the students have enjoyed during the interactive read aloud and thus they know what effective text talk feels like and sounds like. The conversation is anchored on the particular texts being discussed and the reader s personal response. Club members listen actively and carefully to one another, ask one another questions to clarify or extend the meaning they are sharing. Students are instructed to stay on a topic long enough to gain depth and get several perspectives. Students learn how to disagree respectfully; constructive disagreement is valued rather than avoided. Book Clubs promote fluid discussion and a flexible search for meaning. During interactive read aloud students are encouraged to listen actively and respect others ideas. Page 7

The Comprehension Clubs program uses reading and writing as mutually supportive, integrated language processes and students learn to process fiction and informational text across a broad range of text types. The Reader s Notebook process provides for the assessment and evaluation of written responses. The notebook also helps students organize their thinking and become more analytical as they can revisit their thinking and extend and refine their original ideas. Teachers model, discuss and provide practice for a more in-depth written response. See pp. XX for rubrics teachers can use to evaluate various aspects of their students response to their reader s notebooks. The Additional Resources section of the Read-Aloud lesson cards refers students to a website that promotes further research. The Connect to Book Club Books section in the Read-Aloud lesson cards encourages students to explore connections between similar books. In Book Clubs, students are in charge of their own thinking and talking. They have a chance to share what they think within, beyond, and about a text, and their talk, coupled with their reader s notebook, bolsters their awareness of their own development as a proficient reader. Suggested Stopping Points in the Read-Aloud lesson card allows for group and partner discussions regarding key points in the book. In the teaching guide, teachers are asked to focus on Effective Text Talk. This is a result of the many deep conversations about books that the students have enjoyed during the interactive read aloud and thus they know what effective text talk feels like and sounds like. The conversation is anchored on the particular texts being discussed and the reader s personal response. Club members listen actively and carefully to one another, ask one another questions to clarify or extend the meaning they are sharing. Students are instructed to stay on a topic long enough to gain depth and get several perspectives. Students learn how to disagree respectfully; constructive disagreement is valued rather than avoided. Book Clubs promote fluid discussion and a flexible search for meaning. During interactive read aloud students are encouraged to listen actively and respect others ideas.

Text matters and readers need to account for the facts in an informational text. It s from this base that readers are able to extend and refine their understanding. When readers think within the text, they gather basic information from the text and determine its basic meaning. To do Page 18

19 Grade 2 vowel teams. Decode regularly spelled two-syllable words with long vowels. Decode words with common prefixes and suffixes. Identify words with inconsistent but common spelling-sound correspondences. Recognize and read grade-appropriate irregularly spelled words. Fluency 4. Read with sufficient accuracy and fluency to support comprehension. Read grade-level text with purpose and understanding. Read grade-level text orally with accuracy, appropriate rate, and expression. Use context to confirm or self-correct word recognition and understanding, rereading as necessary. Language Conventions of Standard English 1. Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing or speaking. Use collective nouns (e.g., group). Form and use frequently occurring irregular plural nouns (e.g., feet, children, teeth, mice, fish). Use reflexive pronouns (e.g., myself, ourselves). Form and use the past tense of frequently occurring irregular verbs (e.g., sat, hid, told). Use adjectives and adverbs, and choose between them depending on what is to be modified. Produce, expand, and rearrange complete simple and compound sentences (e.g., The boy watched the movie; The little boy watched the movie; The action movie was watched by the little boy). 2. Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing. Capitalize holidays, product names, and geographic names. Use commas in greetings and closings of letters. Use an apostrophe to form contractions and frequently occurring possessives. Generalize learned spelling patterns when writing words (e.g., cage badge; boy boil). Consult reference materials, including beginning dictionaries, as needed to check and correct spellings. Knowledge of Language so, readers must process the text by: Solving Words Decoding words and using word meaning and what they know about language. The teaching guide prompts teachers to assist students in processing the text by adjusting fluency: Adjusting reading speed and technique according to the type of text and purpose for reading and by Maintaining Fluency by integrating multiple sources of information in a seamless flow that enables expressive, correctly phrased reading. Comprehension Clubs has Books on Tape available to teachers,. In this way, they learn about fluency, expression, and reading at an appropriate rate. Fluency and pace affect comprehension. All texts in Comprehension Clubs share certain essential reading components. Readers must solve the words, recognize how the text is organized (the text structure), make sense of the sentences and paragraphs (language structure), and understand what they are reading. Comprehension Clubs has Books on Tape available to teachers,. Struggling readers and English Language Learners need help with fluency and comprehension as well as building their confidence to handle both.

Use sentence-level context as a clue to the meaning of a word or phrase. Determine the meaning of the new word formed when a known prefix is added to a known word (e.g., happy/unhappy, tell/retell). Use a known root word as a clue to the meaning of an unknown word with the same root (e.g., addition, additional). Use knowledge of the meaning of individual words to predict the meaning of compound words (e.g., birdhouse, lighthouse, housefly; bookshelf, notebook, bookmark). Use glossaries and beginning dictionaries, both print and digital, to determine or clarify the meaning of words and phrases. 5. Demonstrate understanding of word relationships and nuances in word meanings. Identify real-life connections between words and their use (e.g., describe foods that are spicy or juicy). Distinguish shades of meaning among closely related verbs (e.g., toss, throw, hurl) and closely related adjectives (e.g., thin, slender, skinny, scrawny). 6.

The Comprehension Clubs lesson cards contain a Vocabulary section that lists essential words and related words for discussion. Thinking within the text during the interactive read-aloud is an effective structure in which to explore academic vocabulary. During interactive read aloud students are encouraged to use suitable words when talking about a text. In Book Clubs, students are in charge of their own thinking and writing. They have a chance to share what they think within, beyond, and about a text, in written form in their Reader s Notebook. In their Reader s Notebooks, students list questions, opinions and textural evidence to support their opinions. Students record their information in the three-part thinking frame: within the text, beyond the text, and about the text. In the Read-Aloud texts there is a Write and Respond section that provides writing and drawing activities. The Comprehension Clubs program uses reading and writing as mutually supportive, integrated language processes and students learn to process fiction and informational text across a broad range of text types.
