This Chinese New Year close reading unit has been specially designed for kindergarten and first grade students! I have had SO MUCH FUN teaching this unit to my students! I hope you and your students will enjoy it just as much!
This unit presents 11 informational text articles based on Chinese New Year. Each article begins with an essential question. High quality photographs engage students and enhance their learning. The essential question is answered within each article. These articles provide detailed information in a very basic format.
After each article you will find a page of 3 explicit text dependent questions. There is also 1 page that includes 2 writing prompts that ask students to summarize and synthesize their learning.
These reading and writing tasks are designed to give young students complex information in a simple, student friendly format. These tasks may be achieved through shared reading and writing, small group activities, or individual student work. (Detailed instructions are provided). This is an excellent way to expose developing readers and writers to rigorous tasks.
