Every week this summer I have been over at 4th Grade Frolics checking out all of the Monday Made It projects that so many teacher bloggers have created.

Freebie...compare and contrast poster and Venn diagram sheet.  This is a great poster to have in your classroom. I even thought you could turn this into a worksheet for the students to use.

Common Core Reading: Focus on Fiction - Half of the Balanced Reading Diet

If you know me, or even if you don't know me, but you follow my blog, you know a few of my favorite things... 1) Picture Books 2) Reading Workshop 3) Teaching Reading Although I wouldn't necessarily classify it as a "favorite thing" I have come to passionately embrace the new Common Core State Standards.
