Core Focus: Putting Common Core Into Action

This monthly column by author and school librarian Toni Buzzeo presents three high-profile children’s books for each of three grade bands (K–1, 2–3, 4–5) along with activities to use in the library that target specific Common Core reading, writing, listening, and speaking standards. Lexile level and text complexity are taken into consideration in selecting the titles. In addition, all questions are written in language appropriate to the developmental level of children in each grade band.
