This close reading bundle is perfect for kindergarten and first grade! This product includes 12 huge K-1 close reading products and is over 1,300 pages! Each of the individual products listed below includes nonfiction articles (perfect for close reading!), text dependent questions, very unique/high quality photographs & more!
Each unit presents several informational text articles. Each article begins with an essential question. High quality photographs engage students and enhance their learning. The essential question is answered within each article. These articles provide detailed information in a very basic format.
After each article you will find a page of 3 explicit text dependent questions. There is also 1 page that includes 2 writing prompts that ask students to summarize and synthesize their learning.
These reading and writing tasks are designed to give young students complex information in a simple, student friendly format. These tasks may be achieved through shared reading and writing, small group activities, or individual student work. (Detailed instructions are provided). This is an excellent way to expose developing readers and writers to rigorous tasks.
-While some first grade students may be able to read these passages independently, these articles were designed to use with support. By using these passages and activities as shared reading/writing experiences you are able to expose your students to a rigorous, content rich text.
-The preview file for this bundle includes a free sample from the Polar Bear unit! You can also see a preview for each individual product by following the links listed below.
-The Animal Babies and Sea Turtles units follow a slightly different format than the other units.
-As more K-1 close reading units are added to my store I plan to include them in this bundle. As new units are added, the price will go up! Buy now and SAVE! (You will be able to re-download the bundle and receive all future updates for free!)
You can learn more about each individual unit by clicking on the 16 individual units that are linked above. Each unit includes a detailed description and preview file. These are all highly rated resources that I have used with great success in my own classroom!
