Who is this packet for?

This is perfect for students who are high achievers. Gifted and talented students, as well as kids who are ready for more independent work, can hugely benefit from this type of activity. I've designed it with a clean and simple look to keep the kids focused on rigorous work aligned to standards. The text theme is fun and highly engaging.

What do Students do?

This is a Close Reading Unit designed with 1st and 2nd graders in mind. Students will read a short text, code it, and complete five activities. The activities are focused on the standards about Main Idea and Details. Students need to use the text to find evidence in order to complete the activities.

  • Students will use text evidence to complete five activities. For the last activity students will write an Opinion Piece by answering a prompt about the text.
  • Lexile levels available in this packet: 400-500 and 500-600.

Reading Levels

The same text is provided in two reading levels: 400-500 & 500-600. Great for easy differentiation. You can easily convert the reading level to the metric you use in your classroom. I use a simple conversion chart that I found online.

Activities included:

↠Teacher Directions (4 Pages)

↠Text Coding Guide

↠Text: "Race Cars: What makes them fast?" (1 Page)

↠Five Activities: Words and Phrases; Comprehension; Main Idea & Details; Find Evidence; Write About It.

I included a suggested pacing guide to deliver the lesson in 5 days. But you can adjust the length and the pacing of the lessons. Each activity should take about 15-20 minutes.

  • It's easy to put together! Just copy all the students pages and staple like a book.

What will you get?

↠ 1 PDF File with all 13 pages.
