This is a teacher created, student approved poster set containing 13 posters. It also includes a student friendly check off list of questions to consider while close reading. The posters are bright, colorful, and clear and would make a great bulletin board in any classroom.
With the new CCSS suggestion "Close Reading" in every Language Arts classroom, this is a great way to introduce it to the students in your classroom.
In my classroom we discussed the questions displayed on the bulletin board and then practiced with a read aloud. I then passed out the check off sheets and students preformed a close read on a poem with a partner. They used the check off sheet as a guide to be sure they were on the right track to thinking. I make sure to explain these questions are suggestions and they are free to wonder or question anything else. After completing more close reads in class, I was then able to gradually take away the check off sheets and now students can close read without any problem.
The check off sheet is still great for small groups, literature circles, struggling students, or to keep as a reminded in reading folders!
This set is also made with a plain, zoo, zebra, and owl theme. Check out our store! If you'd like another theme, please email us @ firstname.lastname@example.org
