This is a 3 minute 33 second upbeat 'doodle' video to introduce close reading to your class. This is a video you might share with your students the day of or the day before you are starting close reading. It might also be a great little video to show parents at open house if you are going to be using close reading in your classroom and you want them to get an idea of what it is.
I also have a great close reading passage brochure about close reading that will work perfectly to use after watching this video. You can find that activity by clicking HERE
If you like this video, please take the time to leave positive feedback. Just as you appreciate the video, I also appreciate hearing how much you love it :-) Also, follow my store so you can see if I add new ones.
about the file: This is a .mov file. Also, videos tend to take a long time to download unless you have lightening speed internet. I have snail paced internet, so it takes me a really long time.
Because this video is upbeat music with flashy words (but paused long enough for kids to read them), it is intended for upper elementary to early middle school.
This video is not a step by step on how to do a close read. It is simply a fun 'hook'/attention grabber to get them excited about close reading. It will tell them what it is a fun way.
