Common Core Standards

Beloved author Beverly Cleary turns 100:

Leveled Reader is joining the celebration of Beverly Cleary’s 100th birthday! One hundred years ago today she was born in McMinville, Oregon. When she was growing up, her school librarian encouraged her to write children’s books. The idea appealed to her and when she grew up she decided to write the books she wanted to read as a girl, but couldn’t find on the shelves at the time. She wrote funny, touching stories inspired by her own neighborhood and the real children she knew. Common Core Standards Reading

Beverly Cleary is the author of more than 40 books, including the classics Beezus and Ramona, Henry and Ribsy, and Dear Mr. Henshaw, which won the Newberry Medal in 1984. Her first book, Henry Huggins, was published in 1950, and her last book, Ramona’s World, was published in 1999. Harper Collins is now publishing new editions of some of her most popular works. What a long and distinguished career! Her works also include two memoirs, The Girl from Yamhill (1988), and My Own Two Feet (1995).

Beverly Cleary is a beloved author with many fascinating stories to tell, and she continues to capture the hearts and imaginations of children of all ages. Her books have stood the test of time, and make fantastic read alouds.

These books support the Common Core Standards Reading. Enjoy these other favorites by Beverly Cleary:

English Language Arts Common Core Standards:

The Common Core Standards are not a curriculum, but instead are a set of expectations aimed at raising the achievement level for all students so that they will be more prepared for college and careers. Forty-six states and the District of Columbia have adopted the Common Core State Standards. The English Language Arts Standards are divided into three areas. Students are required to demonstrate increasing competence in their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills as they advance through the grades. common core standards

  • Reading includes informational and literary texts,
  • Writing includes narrative, informative, and argument/opinion,
  • Speaking and Listening skills for a range of purposes and audiences.

Here are some ways to provide support for a child’s developing Language Arts skills.

  • Encourage a love of reading. Reading for pleasure is by far the best way to enable your child to understand the value of reading and to progress to more difficult books.
  • Focus on informational texts. The Standards concentrate on reading informational texts in a variety of subjects. You can help by providing access to magazine articles, diaries, essays, speeches, legal documents and scientific articles.
  • Reading aloud helps a child to handle more challenging books. Since listening skills develop more quickly than reading comprehension skills, reading aloud is a way to draw in reluctant readers, so they can learn to enjoy books and build up confidence.
  • Talking about books is another important component of the Language Arts Standards. Asking questions about what your child is reading, and incorporating literacy into daily activities are valuable ways to support reading progress.
  • Practice writing. The more time kids spend writing and reading, the stronger their writing skills become. Help your child write stories, songs, plays, how-to manuals, recipes, journals – anything that makes writing… Continue reading
