Close reading just got a whole lot more fun! It is the very first day of a new school year and odd things just keep happening. These mysteries will help your students read a little closer and strengthen their comprehension skills.
With this download you will get 5 different passages. All passages have a before and after picture as well as questions to develop close reading skills, vocabulary, comprehension skills, and much more! I have created this for several other holidays and they are always a hit! These can be used in reading groups, whole group, for individual practice or even in literacy centers.
