Description

FIFTY-FIVE original 5th 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. The learning targets for POINT OF VIEW, TEXT STRUCTURE, and INTEGRATING INFORMATION are extra special because they each have a total of 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:

TEXT EVIDENCE (RI.5.1)

MAIN IDEA (RI.5.2)

BUT, if you are thinking about buying both the Literature AND Informational packs, you should get a DISCOUNT by buying it in a bundle!

5th Grade Close Reading - Informational AND Literature BUNDLE

This product does NOT include the "Add-On" Differentiated Extension Pack. But you may be interested in it. It includes ALL of the passages in this product rewritten at a lower level for your struggling or developing readers. It can be found here:

5th Grade Close Reading **Add-On Extension Pack** Informational Text

CAREFULLY CRAFTED READING PASSAGES

Each passage falls within the Lexile level of 770-980, which is the Common Core Standards expectation for 5th grade. The Lexile level is marked at the top of each passage. The topics range between STEM topics, science, history, and opinion pieces. There are multiple diagrams, illustrations, and photos throughout.

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 5th 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:

The Common Core standards consider 4th and 5th grade level texts within the same Lexile level band of L770-980. That means I use many (about 70%) of the same texts in both the 4th and 5th 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 5th grade teacher is looking for something to differentiate for lower level readers, I suggest my 3rd grade pack.
