This FREEBIE includes TWO original 2nd/3rd grade leveled reading passages and close reading activities perfectly aligned to Common Core Standards RI.2.9 and RI.3.9 (Compare and contrast the most important points...presented in two texts on the same topic.)
This is a sample from my much larger and comprehensive products with FIFTY-TWO original passages and close reading activities perfectly aligned to the Common Core Standards. Each standard has FIVE passages and activities specifically dedicated to that standard. The standards that ask the student to compare and contrast two passages are extra special because they have a total of TEN passages so that your students can compare away! You can find the complete paid products here:
RIGOROUS AND COMMON CORE ALIGNED
This set of passages has THREE pages of carefully written and consistent close reading tasks and text dependent questions. The first page of tasks are specifically aligned to standard 2.9 and 3.9. The second and third page of activities is a spiral of other 2nd and 3rd Grade RI standards. This is perfect for holding those kids accountable for everything they have already learned! No skill slipping on your watch!
WHAT CAN THIS BE USED FOR?
This is perfect for class wide close reading, assessments, guided reading groups, or homework. Your students must refer to the text and provide textual evidence of their understanding.
