    If you have never used Close Reading or even if you are already a pro, this 55-page packet truly is for you! It has everything you need for a complete, successful informational text reading unit.

    The digital version of this packet includes ready-made, visually-appealing Google slides for you to share with your class. It includes interactive drag and drop annotation marks and fillable text dependent activities.

    Each of the 5 passages included in this resource is provided in two differentiated levels. One is in the fifth-sixth grade reading range, and the other is in the third-fourth grade reading level range. The level is given for each passage, along with a guide that provides the corresponding grade level for Lexile levels. I've taken all the guesswork out of differentiating and leveling of passages for you!

    This bundle includes:

    • 5 Informational Passages (2 Differentiated Levels)
    • 5 Days of Close Reading Activities
    • Text Dependent Questions
    • Written Response
    • Teacher Guide Sheet
    • Annotation Guide (full page and ½ page)
    • Printable B/W Pages
    • Color, Interactive Digital Slides for Google Classroom
    • Answer Keys

    This packet includes these informational, high-interest, close reading passages:

    • Peaches: An Amazing Fruit (Month of August, National Peach Month)
    • The Great Rocky Mountains (August 1, National Mountain Climbing Day)
    • The History of the Chocolate Chip Cookie (August 4, National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day)
    • Coast Guard to the Rescue! (August 4, US Coast Guard Day)
    • Wright Brothers: Pioneers of Flight (August 19, Aviation Day)

    This packet is both rigorous and Common-Core aligned. Questions have been carefully crafted to move readers from basic, recall questions to higher-level questions where students must cite evidence from the text to support their answers. There are 5 tasks/activities for each passage, moving from easier tasks to more challenging activities. Each passage and its corresponding activities offer a full-week's worth of close reading.
