This CAP was developed to provide greater focus on literacy experiences in the classroom. Each section is divided into strands which include reading, writing, speaking, listening and language. Each strand is then broken into College and Career Readiness (CCR) Anchor standards which are numbered. For organizational purposes these are then divided into categories. This CAP will better prepare teachers and students in the K-2 classroom setting for the forthcoming implementation of the ELA Common Core Standards. This CAP provides a list of each standard paired with a meaningful activity and examples of exemplar texts. Additionally, an overview of the Lexile Framework of Reading, which is an educational tool that better matches readers to literature, is included. A teacher friendly conversion chart was created to better assist teachers in finding “just right” literature.
