Close Reading is an important, but often difficult skill to teach (and learn)! This close reading assignment and rubric bundle contains assignments for fiction and informational texts. Each day's assignment has a corresponding point value attached.
This makes it easy for you to use it every day, each week, all year long! They are designed to work with most fiction and informational texts in your classroom and/or school library. Keep parents actively involved by having them sign the rubric. Without the signature, the highest score a student may earn is an 80%. Parent involvement increases and grades rise when students use it consistently.
In both packets, I included pages that do not require a signature so you can easily use it during the school day as well.
There are so many ways to use these learning activities! Here are some suggestions:
★ Use in conjunction with your reading book.-Use as writing prompts for journals.
★ Use in guided reading groups and literature circles as discussion prompts.
★ Use as prompts for partner discussions.
★ Use as a center activity.
By buying the bundle, you are saving 20% off the cost of buying the 2 packets separately! If you are interested in buying only one of the packets, you can find them here:
