Grades 4-5 Student Center Activities: Literature (CCSS)

Sometimes an activity will be appropriate for reinforcing a standard in multiple grade levels (e.g., one of the activities designed for grades 2–3 may be usable in grade 1). However, the activity may contain materials such as vocabulary or text that is above a first grade reading level. We suggest that teachers adapt the materials to suit their students’ needs (e.g., change the vocabulary to more appropriate words).

These activities are designated in the table by an asterisk (*). Coding The standards are coded in the following manner: The first letter(s) designates the strand (e.g., L = Language).
