Product Description
This set of 10 passages is specifically written and aligned to the Literature CCSS anchor standards.

Informational Passages can be found here.

These passages are designed to be used for close reading and helping the students gain a deeper understanding of the text. This resource matches and is meant to be used with the Close Reading Mega Kit: 3rd Grade Common Core which you can find here.

There is one passage for each Common Core 3rd Grade Literature standard (Except RL3.9, which has two passages). These passages were specifically written for the standards.

Using the steps in the kit, give the students the text that matches the standard and the bookmark or task card from the Close Reading Mega Kit.. Have the students read the text repeatedly, answering the questions from the Close Reading bookmark or task card each time they read. The students can use a response journal or use the printables available to record notes from their readings.

Each passage contains an extended response prompt that requires the students to use the knowledge they gained from each close read and apply it to a constructed response task.

Example answers are provided for the responses.
