The comprehension activities in this pack are intended for students high achievers in 1st grade, on grade level for 2nd grade, and to provide support in 3rd grade. They can be done in whole group (modeling, shared readings-writings projecting activities on SmartBoard), small strategy groups, collaboratively during literacy centers to provide practice and build reading strength!

**REMEMBER** According to Fisher & Frey: When conducting close reading in the primary grades, the text complexity is substantially higher than the guided reading level of your students. Close reading is intended to gain reading strength, deeper understanding, and strategic knowledge!
