Close reading means digging deeper into the meaning of a text. This amazing 50 page unit contains 25 engaging kindergarten-level stories and 25 corresponding activities that help students learn how to reread a text and dig deeper into its content and meaning. Students will learn how to use their crayons to highlight or underline selected parts of each text. They will be challenged to connect their own views and opinions to the content of a text. Finally, students will be asked to follow directions and illustrate the main characters of the story. Students will become more aware of the importance of “reading for meaning” as they pair and share with a partner. Don’t miss out on this special resource that will help you to teach beginning readers how to “dig deeper” into a text.
