➰ 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 for the 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.
➰ 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 each set)
↠Text Coding Guide
↠Text Titles: How to Start a Lemonade Stand, Race Cars: What makes them fast?, What are Rockets? and Slime: Where did it come from?
↠Five Activities on each set: Words and Phrases; Comprehension; Main Idea & Details; Find Evidence; Write About It. Each set includes the same type of activity but with different questions and prompts.
This bundle is a whole month's worth of close reading activities with text. I included a suggested pacing guide to deliver the lesson in 5 days (each set). But you can adjust the length and the pacing of the lessons. Each individual activity should take about 15-20 minutes.
➰ What will you get?
