PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These independent reading packets were originally developed for my ESOL students in order to scaffold active reading strategies while students are reading independently on classroom texts. There is one 4 page packet for non-fiction and a 3 page packet for fiction. These packets can be used with any text.

I have used these organizers with students in grades 4-8. Once students have been walked through each packet once or twice, it is easy for them to complete independently. The level of the text that is used with these packets determines the level of difficulty while maintaining rigor for all students.

I have not used this yet, but I'm looking forward to doing so. These packets may also be used to show the relationship between fiction and non-fiction. Great for paired texts!
