This close reading resource is perfect for students in kindergarten and first grade. Using a short text allows young students to stay focused while using powerful comprehension strategies. Each student receives a copy of the text to analyze. Project your own color copy as you read through the text and then reread to clarify the meaning. Text dependent questions and lots of opportunities to turn and talk are provided in the lesson plan. Optional extension activities such as labeling and a comprehension sheet are included.
In this close reading lesson, students will read the informational text All About Rain, where they will learn about the water cycle.
