This packet was created to provide year- long close reading practice for homework or in-school. In this packet you will find, over 30 close reading passages in a variety of genres (poetry, fiction, non-fiction, biography) and a variety of topics (seasonal, animal, vacations, parties, holidays, and more). Each passage includes activities for 4 days that challenge students to read and re-read the passages, analyze vocabulary, identify story elements, respond to the text and SO much more!
Each passage in this packet is also aligned to Common Core reading and writing standards. In addition, the passages vary in difficulty. They start with simple CVC and sight word passages and gradually increase in both difficulty and length.
