Product Description

Geared for grades grade 5-6 or to remediate with grade 7. Great for analyzing text and annotating. Perfect for practicing close reading strategies. Questions geared towards reading for details.

4 different cover sheets- 2 are editable to add your own directions. 2 have reading logs. 1 of the cover sheets is specific for 6th Grade Virginia SOLs- fantastic if you are doing Standards Based Grading in Virginia, but would work for all standards. All have rubrics to make grading easy.

These work so well in my classroom! Especially with Standards based grading. The standards I put on the easy print one are 6th Grade VA SOL standards but you could insert a text box and put your own standard in.
