PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

NINETY-SEVEN original 2nd grade leveled reading passages and close reading activities perfectly aligned to Common Core Literature AND Informational reading standards! Standards RI.2.1 – RI.2.8 and RL.2.1 – RL.2.7 EACH have FIVE passages and activities specifically dedicated to that standard. Standards RI.2.9 and RL.2.9 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!

This pack includes both of these products:
2nd Grade Common Core Close Reading Passages and Activities - Informational
2nd Grade Common Core Close Reading Passages and Activities - Literature

This bundle does NOT include the "Add-On" Differentiated Extension Packs. But you may be interested in these packs. They include ALL of the passages in these products rewritten at a lower level for your struggling or developing readers. They can be found here:
2nd Grade Close Reading **Add-On Extension Pack** Informational Text
2nd Grade Close Reading **Add-On Extension Pack** Literature


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 2nd Grade RI (informational) and RL (literature) 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.

CAREFULLY CRAFTED READING PASSAGES
Each passage falls within the Lexile level of 450-790, which is the Common Core Standards expectation for 2nd grade. The Lexile level is marked at the top of each passage. There are a variety of literature text types including poetry, narratives, biographies, and letters.The informational text types range between STEM topics, science, history, and opinion pieces. The formats include website simulations, magazine articles, and texts with multiple diagrams. In terms of interest level, EVERY passage is written with a 2nd grader in mind.

NOTE:
The Common Core standards consider 2nd and 3rd grade level texts within the same Lexile level band of 450-790. That means I use most (about 85%) of the same texts in both the 2nd and 3rd grade products. I only modify the passages slightly for text complexity and to better match the specific grade level standards. However, you will see that the questions and tasks on each of these grade level products are completely different and aligned to that grade level’s standards. If a 2nd grade teacher is looking for something to differentiate for higher level readers, I suggest my 4th Grade Close Reading packs. If you are looking to differentiate for lower level readers, you don’t need to buy the 1st Grade pack, you can save money and use the 2nd Grade add-on differentiation packs - Informational DIFFERENTIATION PACK, Literature DIFFERENTIATION PACK.
