Product Description
Do you have your students highlight while they closely read a text? Provide students with a focus while they closely read with these Highlighting Keys.

Each different key targets specific skills, concepts, and standards. Choose they key that matches the text and what you are teaching.

Students love these keys because they can choose their own highlighter colors, making it their own. As they become more proficient at using these to closely read, they can choose the key that they feel best matches the text they are reading or the purpose of their reading.

We've also included a blank key for you to fill in with things you may wish students to find as they read. Students can also use the blanks to create individualized keys.
