You've come to the right place!  For your convenience, we have compiled a list of suggested mentor texts for Common Core Literacy skills that we own here in Ely Library's Education Resources Collection.  These lists were initially created by Hello Literacy blogger and teacher, Jen Jones, for Reading Literature (RL) standards 1-10 for grades K-2.  Here at the ERC, we have utilized and expanded on these lists with books from our collection for your convenience and instruction.  Just click on the tabs above and find what you're looking for.
