Product Description

These Close Reading Companions are a way for students to make the connection between the reading strategy/skill taught in your Benchmark Advance minilessons to how the strategy may look in the form of a test question. Each page includes a graphic organizer and an "Apply It!" test question. These can be used during whole group lessons or as a center activity. Print individually or give to students as a booklet at the start of your unit.

See preview. Please note that by purchasing this file, you are only purchasing Unit 8 for fourth grade. This is not a growing bundle. This is compatible with Benchmark Advance curriculum, not the Benchmark Literacy program. This aligns to the California and National Editions of Benchmark Advance. However, if you are outside of CA, compare preview file to your TRS lessons first & purchase at your own risk.
