How to Use Finish Line Finish Line supplements your core basal program with instruction and practice that are concise and simply presented. Components include student workbooks, student answer booklets, and annotated teacher’s editions.
Standards Connection Student books are divided into units that parallel the strands in the CCSS at grade level.
Format of Instruction The books use the gradual release model—from teacher-led instruction to individual student work—in a four-part lesson format: Skill Introduction, Focused Instruction, Guided Practice, and Independent Practice.
Language Arts In addition to lessons on reading comprehension skills, each book includes a full unit of writing and language standards for students to practice the writing process, learn how to answer open-ended questions, and apply grammar and usage conventions.
Close Reading of Rigorous Text Much like Common Core standards and assessments, the books require students to find evidence from the text to support their answers.
Vocabulary A glossary in each student book includes terms that appear in boldface throughout the book.
Teacher Support Annotated teacher’s editions include suggestions for use/teaching strategies; student book pages with correct answers, correlations to the Common Core State Standards and Depth of Knowledge (DOK), and answer analysis for items in the Independent Practice; speaking, writing, and listening activities; media/research activities; Tier 2 and Tier 3 vocabulary support; and ELL support.
Student Answer Booklets Reuse your workbooks year after year with our student answer booklets. Students write their work and answers right into the booklets, keeping the workbooks free and clear for future use. They’re an affordable option for tight school budgets.
