With text complexity increasing during this new Common Core era--- Shifting from Guided Reading to Close Reading is happening in CCSS classrooms across the U.S.. Excellent for use in Reading Workshop, during Guided Reading or for your Reading Binder.

This product is nearly identical to my Common Core Close Reading Toolkit It's in at #1 at my store--- the difference between the two is that this is aligned to 3rd and the other is aligned to anchor standards.

have been a first grade teacher for a while and just found out I am being moved to third grade. I expected your product to be a good tool for my new Dual Immersion third grade class, but as I look through it; it is so much more than just a tool or a resource. It is filled with great common core material I will use! Thanks

I can't apologize enough for not removing that when I marked it back up a little while ago. I had it physically, well digitally, marked on the product all week. I will remove that statement speedily.

I appreciate the interaction and hope I can make it more clear. My intention was until Friday which it is now Saturday where I am on the East Coast. I had it marked down all week without the sale that I started tonight.

I removed the discount about an hour ago but I can put it on for you if you are on right now. I am still awake so just come back to here within the hour or email me at harrod.amy@icloud.com and I will mark it down for you if you are interested in it.

Hi Amy!

Is this product similar to the CCSS Toolkit or is it something else that I should have to accompany it? Thank you!

Hiya Denise! Yes it is very much similar. Just aligned to 3rd and I added a few reading response pages. For those that already purchased the original toolkit I posted the reading response pages separately. You can find it at my store. I'll put it in the featured section at the top. It's for third grade teachers. If you teach 2nd or 4th it may also be good to have if you differentiate.
