Engage your students with informational close reading passages, writing pages/organizers, and craftivites that are ready to go! (I'm loving this batty resource!)
This Non-Fiction close reading packet can used daily or as a weekly booklet. Training your students how to annotate these readings are quick and easy! All close reads included follow the same format, which makes for ideal independent work! Students refer back to text to support their answer (annotate). This resource has rich vocabulary for your students to explore and key ideas for them to discover.
These can be used effectively during literacy centers. Students can work on a page a day, also taking notes on details of interest. These notes can be saved to use on research reports.
* text dependent questions (main idea, key details)
