I ended up creating my own worksheets and lesson plans for the kids and was able to incorporate a lot of the writing and language standards from the Common Core State Standards. I really like connecting our reading and writing together and find less resistance from the students this way.
You can find and download these lessons at my TPT store.
I have also read aloud The Witches (which I got them all for Christmas from Scholastic Book Clubs for only $1) and The BFG. We are also working on Dirty Beasts which I give to groups that finish early. They work together to practice fluency and expression as well as look at sentence structure and word usage. I haven't found a book that the kids (and I) don't love. I am dragging my feet about moving on to something else in reading already!
