Close Reading -
ONE-HUNDRED original 1st grade leveled close reading passages and activities perfectly aligned to the Common Core Literature AND Informational reading standards! Each passage falls within the Lexile Level range of 250-580. The Lexile Level is marked at the top of each passage.
EACH standard has FIVE passages and activities specifically dedicated to that standard. Standards RL.1.5, RL.1.9, and RI.1.9 are extra special (you know, the ones where you compare two texts) because each standard has a total of TEN passages so that your students can compare away!
RIGOROUS AND COMMON CORE ALIGNED
Each passage has TWO pages of carefully written and consistent close reading tasks and text dependent questions. The first page of tasks are specifically aligned to the standard identified at the top of the page. The second page of activities is a spiral of all the
1st Grade RI or RL standards. This is perfect for holding those kids accountable for everything they have already learned! No skill slipping on your watch!
WHAT CAN THIS BE USED FOR?
This is perfect for class-wide close reading, assessments, guided reading groups, or homework. Your students must refer to the text and provide textual evidence of their understanding.

They have only been modified for less text complexity and to better match the 1st grade standards. However, you will see that the questions and tasks on each of these products are completely different and completely aligned to the grade level standards.
