GECDSB Curriculum Aligned Mentor Texts

By Greater Essex County District School Board Last updated 2024/06/28


Thank you to Greater Essex County DSB for generously sharing this spreadsheet! It contains sets of texts aligned with content from the 4 frames (kindergarten), social studies and science curricula (grades 1 – 6), and history and geography curricula (grades 7 and 8).

These content-rich texts are meant to be used in repeated shared reading as part of a text buffet during the literacy block. The goal is to build knowledge and vocabulary, complementing content area instruction and levelling the playing field through content equity.
