Student Center Activities Aligned to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects K-5
Verhagen, Connie
Center on Instruction
This publication helps educators create differentiated reading instruction experiences for their students by showing the relationship between two distinct resources: Student Center Activities (SCAs) and the Common Core State Standards (CCSSs). Reading specialists, reading coaches, and teachers will find this document useful in lesson planning, as it contains crosswalks that map the relationships between each Student Center Activity and a corresponding, grade-specific standard in CCSS. Specifically, this publication illustrates how SCAs relate to standards in English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects K-5 (ELA-Literacy). The SCAs were created by the Florida Center for Reading Research for K-5 classroom teachers as differentiated reading activities for use in small student groups. The activities provide practice and support skill-building in the five components of reading (phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension). They do not constitute a reading program and are not intended to be implemented as initial instruction. Rather, SCAs should be used for independent practice opportunities and reinforcement after the explicit teaching of concepts or skills. SCAs can also be used with struggling readers in intervention and special education settings and with adolescents who need intensive intervention in any of the five components of reading. The SCAs appear in grade span groups: K-1, 2-3 and 4-5.
