PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Close reading is a reading strategy I began using with my students to enhance their understanding of text. Many of my students were struggling to navigate grade-level reading passages effectively, and required a more systematic process to help them gain a better understanding of what they were reading. By having them read a text multiple times and mark up the text as they were reading, they were becoming more focused and attentive readers.

I came up with the acronym FRUIT, to help my students grasp the steps of CLOSE reading, which you will see described and broken down on the following pages of this flip book toolkit. It has been the perfect strategy for MY students and I am excited to share it with you. In addition, I wanted to create reference source for my students to keep in their reading binder in order to be able to review the close reading process at anytime.

This 8-page Flip Book includes:
• title page
• my 3-read close reading strategy to navigate text
• simple directions for printing, cutting, stapling

Directions for Use…

• Copy the following pages on color or white paper.

• Students can cut on the designated lines and staple in order.

• Have students create the toolkit as a whole class,, small group, or as a one-on-one intervention. The uses are endless.

• Teach students the Close Reading Strategies-FRUIT

• Have students consistently practice FRUIT using various reading selections.

• Watch as your students become more engaged, independent readers capable of answering text dependent questions
