I like to teach multiple skills when I have the chance ~ don't we all? This activity also helps build fluency, comprehension and close reading and writing skills ~ for students of all abilities!
I made up this activity for an observation and to help my students find the main idea and ask and answer questions.
I use this lesson over and over with my students. I just change the reading passage! I also use it with my science textbook. I use the lesson sheets with small groups, and I have my whole class use them independently. The worksheets and lesson guides are very versatile and are differentiated for you!
