Description

FIFTY original 1st grade close reading passages and activities that are PERFECT for teaching your students to become masters of close reading. There are nine non-fiction learning targets in this product. Each learning target has 5 passages specifically dedicated to it. Comparing and contrasting two texts on the same topic is extra special because it has a total of 10 passages so that your students can compare away!

Each passage has 2 pages of carefully written and consistent close reading tasks or text dependent questions. The first page of close reading tasks is specifically aligned to the learning target identified at the top of the page.

The second page of tasks is a SPIRAL REVIEW of all the informational learning targets for the grade level. This is perfect for holding those kids accountable for everything they have already learned! No skill slipping on your watch!

The learning targets included are:

ASK AND ANSWER QUESTIONS (RI.1.1)

MAIN TOPIC AND KEY DETAILS (RI.1.2)

CONNECTIONS (RI.1.3)

WORD MEANINGS (RI.1.4)

TEXT FEATURES (RI.1.5)

UNDERSTANDING IMAGES (RI.1.6)

KEY IDEAS (RI.1.7)

AUTHOR’S REASONS (RI.1.8)

COMPARE AND CONTRAST (RI.1.9)

DIGITAL DISTANCE LEARNING OPTION INCLUDED
In addition to the traditional printable pack, the activities in this download can also be assigned via Google slides or Google Classroom, which makes it very versatile for digital distance learning.

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 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.

WHAT STANDARDS IS THIS ALIGNED TO?

This product is most closely aligned to the Common Core standards. However, everything is referenced as “learning targets” so that it is applicable within any 1st grade classroom. There are two options in this download. You can choose to either use a version that makes references to Common Core or a version that does NOT make references to Common Core. The content is the same in both files, but this option gives Common Core schools a specific reference to the corresponding standard, which may be helpful.

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.
