PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

FIFTY original 1st grade leveled reading passages and close reading activities perfectly aligned to Common Core! Standards RI.1.1-RI.1.8 each have FIVE passages and activities specifically dedicated to that standard. Standard RI.2.9 is extra special (you know, the one where you compare two texts on the same topic) because it 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 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.

This is a perfect companion to use with my related Literature pack:
1st Grade Common Core Close Reading Passages and Activities - Literature
BUT, if you are thinking about buying both the Literature AND Informational packs, you should get a DISCOUNT by buying it in a bundle!
1st Grade Close Reading - Informational AND Literature BUNDLE

CAREFULLY CRAFTED READING PASSAGES
Each passage falls within the Lexile level of 380-580, which is perfect for your readers who are ready for the challenge of close reading! These are not meant to be independent work unless your readers are VERY strong. Most 1st grade students will need teacher guidance and support to work through the activities because they require a lot of DIGGING DEEP!

The Lexile level is marked at the top of each passage. The topics range between STEM topics, science, history, and opinion pieces. The formats include website simulations, magazine articles, and texts with multiple diagrams. You can see a full list of the passage titles as well as the lexile levels and word counts by downloading the preview.

NOTE:
If you have purchased my BESTSELLING 2nd Grade Common Core Close Reading Informational Text Passages and Activities, please note that nearly 70% of passages are the same. 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 1st grade level standards.
